NAHMA awards 2019 Innovation Award to
AHMA East Texas
Given in recognition, by AHMA size (Small), of a new program, service or activity that an AHMA began sometime in late 2017 or in 2018
AHMA East Texas, in the wake of Hurricane Harvey in 2017, created a Disaster Plan course where by all participants would not only gain an in-depth familiarity with the HUD Handbook Chapter 38: Multifamily Emergency/Disaster Guidance, but would leave the course with a functioning disaster plan that is adaptable to the unique characteristics of any property. This plan is also suitable for any man-made, local disaster or widespread presidentially declared disaster. Forty-one of AHMA East Texas’ 72 members attended the disaster training and left with a ready-to-use plan, representing 57 percent of the association’s membership.
