FEMA campers are set up when there has been a natural disaster. If you have been through a tornado, flood or hurricane, you should contact your local insurance agent to determine if you are eligible for housing in one of these campers. Most of the campers are for people who have lost their homes completely. The campers are like small trailers and have all of the amenities that you would find in a home. You will only be able to stay in the camper for a designated amount of time. When you are in the camper, it is important to try to rebuild your own home as soon as possible.
FEMA can help with the cost of temporary housing after a disaster, and on occasion even helps with finding that housing. Some types of FEMA housing has in the past included houses, apartments, stadiums, and even cruise ships.

There are emergency housing available in most major US cities. They are typically run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. They become active when there is an natural disaster.
Habitat for Humanity believes that every man, woman and child should have a safe and affordable place to live. While building homes is central to our mission, it is only one piece of the puzzle. Other issues include inadequate housing, homelessness, secure tenure, disaster preparedness, post-disaster recovery, slum housing, etc.
The most common temporary shelters are tents.

Sheltering citizens doesn't necessarily create more problems during a major disaster...sheltering becomes an issue because of lack of awareness and/or preparedness. When it comes to natural disasters, or disasters of any kind that require housing for displaced citizens, coordination efforts are hampered due to lack of agreements in place between organizations which can offer housing assistance.
The Emergency Shelter Grants program provides homeless persons with basic shelter and essential supportive services. It is a government service in times of disaster or need.
Disaster reduction is disaster mitigation .
