FEMA Struggles To Recover Million
FEMA is still struggling to recover millions of dollars in improper payments that it spent to help victims of recent hurricanes. A watchdog group said the agency recovered about a third of the money. The Project on Government Oversight looked at records from fiscal 2005 to 2010. It sought information on FEMA payments to people found guilty of fraud related to helping victims of hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma. The group also looked at how the agency chased after the improper payments. It accused FEMA of having no standard process in place. The agency said it was recovering millions of dollars and no longer made the same mistakes in handing out disaster relief money in the first place.
