FEMA and Emergency Housing

More Katrina related scholarship of interest:
Damian Williams, Sheltering Deprivations: FEMA, Section 408 Housing, and Procedural Redesign, 116 Yale L.J. 1883 (2007), available here

As Williams writes, "Shuffled from makeshift camps to hotels and motels and finally to mobile homes and subsidized apartments, Katrina survivors have endured a long road toward normalcy—one made more difficult by FEMA’s inadequate administration of section 408." 
Williams explains the details of the section 408 program and suggests ways to reform the program.
