Far From Home: Deficiencies in Federal Disaster Housing Assistance After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and Recommendation for Improvement [open pdf - 5MB]
In February 2008, this Subcommittee began a bipartisan investigation into the Federal disaster housing response, which was authorized by the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. The Subcommittee investigated the Federal Government's coordinated disaster housing response after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, as led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This Subcommittee Report focuses exclusively on housing, specifically the Federal response to housing needs in major disaster declarations.
