Reconstruction aids for private housing structures lost in earthquakes were calculated on the basis of six criteria and published statistics. The criteria were generated from a principle given by the authors that the housing recovery does not degrade the quality of living of the affected, and their acceptability was confirmed through a questionnaire survey done in affected areas of a recent damaging earthquake. It was suggested that the financial assistance is needed only by families with an annual income less than seven million yen when earthquake insurance is not included and four million yen when included. Diffusion of earthquake insurance and financial standing of the affected were the significant issues carefully included in the development of assistance models.
