Tuscaloosa Recovery Funding

Tuscaloosa Paid $5.89 Million In Recovery Funding
Tuscaloosa city officials say the Federal Emergency Management Agency has so far paid $5.89 million to help the city recover from the April 2011 tornado.
While officials say they wish the FEMA storm expense reimbursements, which totals $10.5 million, were being paid more quickly, Mayor Walt Maddox told the Tuscaloosa News city leaders understand federal budget cuts and the government shutdown likely had an impact on the payment timeline.
The newspaper reports $2.76 million of the remaining recovery funding has been approved by FEMA but not distributed yet. An additional $1.85 million is pending FEMA review.
