Selection criteria are being established for Mississippi Gulf Coast residents interested in replacing their FEMA travel trailer or mobile home under the state's Alternative Housing Pilot Program.
The program, which consists of three housing designs- Park Models, Mississippi Cottages and Green Mobile units - was granted more than $280 million in funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The Governor's Office is hosting meetings this week with local and state officials from Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties concerning the program. Once the selection criteria have been created, current temporary housing tenants will be notified.
Announcements also will be posted on www.governorbarbour.com/recovery.
The designs can be viewed online at
