Long-term recovery is a policy issue which is receiving increased attention in the disaster research literature. Here the problems of housing and family recovery are considered. While present programs exist to address housing and family recovery, the prevailing emphasis upon rapid return to the status quo ante tends to oscure the problems of victim mental health, equitable distribution of recovery funds, and social-psychological dimensions of housing placement.-Author
