FEMA (Unbelievably) to Katrina Victims: We Want Our Money Back, We Think
Six years after thousands of people lost their homes and lives to Hurricane Katrina, they're again caught in the bureaucratic tangles of a famously inept FEMA. A year after FEMA told 83,000 people they'd have to return almost $400 million in faulty aid grants - about $4,622 per family - a new law says some payments will be waived, but FEMA has yet to figure out whose or when or how or how much. And the families wait. Heckofajob, FEMA, still.
