The Role of Public Adjusters in Disaster Recovery for Affordable Housing

According to the Federal Government’s Accountability Office, there is a nationwide shortage of Affordable Housing available in as many as 7 million units. This shortfall is especially critical in urban areas. The current allocation of affordable housing in NYC does not remotely meet the need. This additionally means that any time an existing property sustains damage to its structure and/or internal residential units, more families are placed in crisis and potentially become homeless. A loss of affordable housing due to major property damage can create additional and often severe economic community impacts. That is why its developers, owners, and managers must align themselves with United Public Adjusters & Appraisers as their public adjuster in NYC. Our services can be invaluable by facilitating and expediting the recovery process, as our team specializes in managing property damage claims for affordable housing entities, by offering tailored solutions aligned with the mission-driven focus of non-profit organizations. This way, affordable housing management can continue its unwavering focus on supporting community stability.
