Was shelter at home a success? Almost half of people surveyed by state said temporary repairs didn't bring them home*
from Emergency Management
Nearly half of the August flood victims surveyed by Louisiana after they got help from Louisiana's house repair program said they didn't return home after the work was done, even though the goal of the effort was to get people back under their own roofs. The $165 million Shelter at Home program, which, by design, did temporary work on flood-damaged dwellings, has been criticized by some homeowners and public officials, who have questioned its effectiveness and cost.
