  • Having been involved in the Ike Recovery fund distribution, Houston is going to have a rough time using the money. I think in 2015 we were just repairing roofs in poor neighborhoods from the 2008 storm. As the Ike Funding deadline approached, no one could come up with an agreeable solution for the funds. Even affordable homes were considered gentrification in poor neighborhoods. The only people that will see quick and efficient utilization of these funds are people that live in neighborhoods with ethical, efficient, and knowledgeable State, Local, and Civic leaders (All of which have a vote). Unfortunately that will is not the leadership of low income communities.
