Where Is the Money Going

In January 2013, Congress passed H.R. 41 and H.R. 152, totaling approximately $60 billion. H.R. 41 increased FEMA's borrowing authority for the National Flood Insurance program and H.R. 152, the Disaster Relief Appropriation Act, allocated Hurricane Sandy disaster-relief funds to 19 federal agencies for aid to impacted individuals and states.  These agencies are distributing these funds through existing disaster-relief programs.
