COVID-19 Housing Assistance Programs

Many housing assistance programs across the United States have had a slow start getting assistance to struggling households. Tetra Tech’s proven turnkey approach to rapidly mobilize and process applications reduces the time it takes to launch a program and disburse funds. In just 90 days, Tetra Tech disbursed $100 million dollars in housing assistance funding.
