The slow Road Home

As reported in the New York Times:
SlowThe $7.5 billion program to rebuild Louisiana by helping residents repair or replace their flooded homes has gotten off to a slow start, frustrating government officials and outraging many homeowners who say they are still in limbo 14 months after Hurricane Katrina hit.

Though nearly 79,000 families have applied to the program, called the Road Home, only 1,721 have been told how much grant money they will receive. And just 22 have received access to the cash, which was provided by federal taxpayers and is being distributed by the state.

Even more frustrating is that the Road Home has managed to incurred $60 million in administrative costs in order to distribute the $700K that it has managed to dole out to date.
