Red Cross: FEMA’s Not Intended to Make You Whole After Harvey
HANNES: "I think what we tell them right now is to ensure they register with us, with FEMA, or our 1-800 number. We will be them for their domestic — we will be there for them through the long haul. We are looking at multiple and creative options to make sure they get back in their homes. FEMA’s intent is not to make you whole, it’s to give you seed money to get you started on recovery. We have the Housing and Urban Development, a community block grant development. All these funds along with philanthropic organizations, our state and local partners pulling together those resources."
