Our records from FEMA finally arrived today…almost 18 months after my initial request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). It consists of 111 pages compiled in a single PDF document on CD.
Although a lot of information is missing or deliberately omitted, there is proof that rental assistance was approved. Is also shows where we provided our landlord’s contact information as required but does not explain why he was not paid or why we were not reimbursed.
I’m not sure what, if anything, we can do with this information without legal representation, but at least we now have evidence should we get the opportunity to use it.
