ABC13 Reports Only One Home Rebuilt Since Harvey with $1.2 Billion in Federal Aid

Ted Oberg of ABC 13 investigated a $1.2 billion federally-funded program that has only approved 22 applications since Harvey, and the private companies, which have been paid millions by the City of Houston to operate it.

He found families still displaced. Elderly victims still living in homes that need repairs. Two years after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in 2017, many residents still need help.

Among the findings: only one resident has received keys to a rebuilt home so far.

What’s taking so long?
