Thanks to a recently approved short-term spending measure, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is currently generating federal funds into disaster recovery and mitigation projects across the U.S.
According to the Washington Post, the federal funding for disaster recovery was postponed due to Hurricane Irene this past summer. Congress recently approved another $2.65 billion into FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund.
The agency should expect more funds after the 2012 spending bill is finalized. “We are in the process of working with our state and local partners across the country to get these projects moving again and to continue to help support their recoveries,” said the agency in a recent blog post.
