In the last five years, FEMA has obligated more than $8.9 billion for Public Assistance projects related to the Hurricanes Katrina and Rita recovery efforts in Louisiana. That funding is helping rebuild critical infrastructure all across the state including schools, universities and even jail facilities. These videos highlight the work done on specific projects and allow the stakeholders to tell their stories of survival and rejuvenation in their own words. Visit http://www.fema.gov/rebuildinglives for more information on FEMA's role in the rebuilding and recovery efforts.
