Federal Allocations in Response to Katrina, Rita, and Wilma: An Update


Amid the often rancorous debate over federal spending for hurricane recovery and rebuilding, the Metropolitan Policy Program follows the money spent on Katrina, as well as the Rita storm. The fact sheet also includes a timeline of federal allocations.

This brief with the accompanying tables illustrates the program categories behind the federal allocations to date for hurricane recovery activities and the chronology of legislative and executive decisions to respond to the needs of the Gulf Coast. These tables will be updated as new developments occur.
