Houston to be reimbursed for Katrina

July 14, 2009 3:18:52 PM PDT
The City of Houston is getting reimbursed for providing housing assistance to Hurricane Katrina evacuees. Mayor Bill White announced the city won two appeals to FEMA, which will grant the city over $2.4 million in expenses.

During the aftermath of Katrina in 2005, Houston volunteered to serve as FEMA's agent to organize housing assistance for evacuees.

Most of the money was reimbursed, but additional expenses that incurred were originally denied.
