Disasters chatter properties and fragilize their safety and sustainability. Whether man-made or natural hazards, they render the buildings habitability, functionality and operationality inappropriate. Thus, stakeholders shall directly assess the damages and plan for the adequate and accurate housing support of the surveyed blocks. These plans and strategies shall cope with the complexity of the occurring problems and highlight the support priorities and their types for a set of damaged buildings. Therefore, combining multi-criteria decision-making tools and implementing their techniques in defining the suitable measures is of paramount necessity. This paper presents a modified approach for the combination of ITARA and TOPSIS while coping with the RRP and standardizing approaches. The proposed combination scheme is, to the best of our knowledge, a novel approach in categorizing the distressed buildings regarding their required assistance, priorities, rank reversal problem, threshold criteria and alternatives.
