Transitional Sheltering Assistance
FEMA opened TSA (Transitional Sheltering Assistance) program on 8/18/16. FEMA may provide TSA to
eligible disaster survivors who have a continuing need for shelter after the congregate shelters have
closed because they are unable to return to their homes for an extended period of time. This initiative is
intended to provide short-term lodging for eligible disaster survivors whose communities are either
uninhabitable or inaccessible due to disaster-related damages.
