Abstract:An innovative sustainability model is also developed to quantify and maximize the sustainability of integrated housing recovery efforts, which comply with the Alternative Housing Pilot Program (AHHP) proposed by FEMA and aims at developing innovative alternative housing projects to serve both as temporary and permanent housing. To this end, the study developed (1) a set of sustainability metrics to quantify the social, environmental, economic, and public safety impacts of decisions on the integrated housing recovery efforts; (2) a sustainability index to measure the level of sustainability of various integrated housing recovery plans; (3) an optimization model to maximize the sustainability of integrated housing recovery efforts.
