Is this money for people that did not purchase insurance?
If they have insurance why do they need assistance?
I can see money for the city to clear debris and clean up, power installation and other infrastucture, but not individuals.

"Stuckey said one hold-up for some applicants is they overlook the Small Business Administration paperwork--because they aren't small business owners. You may get an SBA disaster loan application when you apply for FEMA aid, and you must complete it whether you run a business or not..

"Should you not qualify for the loan, we send you back to FEMA," SBA spokesman Greg Dawson said."

HuH? Federal gov't at it's best. my DOG runs in circles on command and the Feds want people to do the same thing? you have to apply for an SBA loan when you don't need one? This is about as great as Bama holding all the tax refunds.... vote em all out and start over.

It shouldn't, but it probably will.

The money is there for those who HAD insurance but perhaps not sufficient enough. I surely hope all of you have insurance to cover every single aspect of your lives.....some don't have enough and can only afford so much. Having a tornado completely tear your home apart is reason enough to have some assistance.

The reason you apply for an SBA loan is this - First you are turned down by FEMA for a grant. Then if you still feel you need help you apply for a low interest loan for rebuilding/replacement. If you do not want the loan then that is fine...you do not have to take it if approved. If you do not qualify for the loan at all then you will be referred back to FEMA for other types of grants for housing replacement.

All I can say is that even with an income of $70k/year and sufficient insurance to pay for my families medical bills and enough to cover our destroyed home thank GOD for FEMA in our lives these past few weeks!
