FEMA Offers Katrina Survivors Federal Trailers for $1

Breaking News

The offer comes 10 days after the FEMA housing program officially ended and amid growing worries that federal officials would start evicting tenants.

The federal government is offering 3,400 survivors of hurricanes Katrina and Rita who have not found permanent housing a chance to buy the temporary federal trailers they live in now for as little as one dollar.

A FEMA official told a House panel last month that the government would start sending eviction notices on June 1 to hurricane survivors still living in temporary housing and try to connect them to agencies that can help them. But he added it would take months before the evictions began.
