Information for Families' Rebuilding Efforts in Gulf Coast States
The FDIC recognizes that even a year after the hurricanes, families are struggling with difficult issues and decisions relating to housing. In an effort to help consumers, the FDIC and NeighborWorks® America created the Navigating the Road to Housing Recovery Guide (Guide) to assist consumers impacted by hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, and Rita. The Guide will also be a valuable tool for financial institutions, counselors, and other organizations working with consumers.
The purpose of the Guide is to help families make informed decisions, initiate a plan tailored to their needs, identify products and services that can be of assistance, and steer clear of mistakes.

There is even a map for those Undecided and in need of assistance before making a decision.
Consumer Information Sessions
The schedule of other upcoming sessions is available on the NeighborWorks® Web site: http://www.nw.org/network/nwa.asp.
Similar sessions are also being considered for the other Gulf Coast states. These sessions will help homeowners establish a step-by-step rebuilding plan and provide guidance for accessing financial resources for covering gaps between available funds and the costs to rebuild. The session will also include tips for strengthening personal credit and developing family budget plans.
