Legal Access Alameda – CalHFA Title Clearing Coordinator: Disaster survivors face many legal issues that create significant obstacles to their recovery. One of the most challenging issues is not having clear title to a home. Often, particularly in lower income families, title is held in the name of someone long dead, and the family has not had the resources to update it. Then, when disaster strikes, they are deemed ineligible for FEMA or insurance benefits, because they cannot prove that they own the property that was damaged or destroyed. This, in turn, can mean the difference between being able to recover from a terrible disaster, and spiraling even more deeply into poverty and homelessness. This position will support the team working to contribute to the important work of disaster preparedness and disaster recovery by conducting outreach and educational presentations, as well as providing direct services to those affected or who might be affected by a disaster and helping them clear title in order to qualify for government and insurance assistance.
