FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is running out of money, causing Disaster Recovery Projects across the country to stall. Perry County in Kentucky, which suffered from flooding last year, was informed by FEMA that it was pausing reimbursements for road repairs and home buyouts due to a lack of funds. This has left the county in a financial hole equivalent to 10% of its annual budget. The funding pause has also affected numerous other projects, including hurricane recovery efforts in Florida and Puerto Rico. Congress has been urged to provide additional funding to address the situation.
