The government has started providing trailers to families needing housing after their homes burned during Central Texas wildfires.
FEMA spokesman Ray Perez said Wednesday that the trailers will be available for up to 18 months.
Eligible residents need to apply to be considered for FEMA housing assistance. Two- and three-bedroom trailers are available.
