"Mississippi received a $29.9 million Hazard Mitigation grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the state's Coastal Retrofit Program (Program). The goal of the Program was to help 2,000 Mississippi homeowners strengthen their homes against wind damages in future disasters. We received complaints that the state was mishandling Federal funds for this Program. FEMA should suspend all grant payments for the $29.9 million Program until Mississippi can properly account for Federal funds."
