Field Ops Memo 2005-35: Temporary Emergency Shelter Placement -20-mile Rule

An EA household needing temporary emergency shelter must be placed within 20 miles of their “home community” unless they request otherwise or such shelter is unavailable or inappropriate. When a temporary emergency shelter is not available within the 20 mile limit, temporary emergency shelter will be provided in another Department-approved temporary emergency shelter as an interim measure.  This Field Ops memo sets up a tracking system to keep track of families who are placed in interim placements outside of 20 miles of their home community, and a "declination form" for families to sign if they do not want to be transferred back to within 20 miles of their home community.
