Louisiana Flood Relief Panel Meeting Today
Over 1 billion dollars in federal money will soon be in the state's control. The money is being placed in our state's hands to help those who were affected by flooding in the state in 2016. The group responsible for dispensing that money is scheduled to meet today in Baton Rouge.
They are the least likely to have the resources they need to get back on their feet by themselves.
Forbes suggested that when the additional resources granted by the federal government are finally allocated more people can be helped.
Now with the $1.2 billion added we will be talking about a plan that provides funds for everybody who had major damage, and who doesn't have flood insurance.
For those who might question the amount of time it has taken Uncle Sam to react to the flooding in the state, you have good reason to be asking. It's been almost 150 days since the flooding in August begin. The bulk of that federal money is still in the process of being processed. Forbes speculates that by March all the documents should be in place and the flow of the larger amount of federal money will begin.
