The Lens: $11.8 Million In Federal Home Elevation Grants Under Review

TheLens-585x174.png

Home elevation has been a big topic — and a big headache — since the post-Katrina floods of 2005. It’s often an expensive process, but our partners at The Lens found a home elevation grant program that seems to have a particularly big price tag: $11.8 million dollars to raise 48 to 55 homes. That’s about a quarter million per house, on average.

Reporter Charles Maldonado at The Lens looked deeper into this budget item. He talked to WWNO News Director Eve Troeh about the situation.
