FEMA offering free travel to hurricane evacuees
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita evacuees and their dependents living in Texas shelters, hotels and motels, who wish to relocate, have until Dec. 31 to take advantage of free oneway airplane, train or bus tickets.
Applicants may apply for the program by calling FEMA’s toll-free number at 800-621-FEMA (3362). Travel is restricted to the lower 48 states.
The purpose of the program is to help individuals, whose homes were unlivable, reunite with family members and move to more suitable housing. Applicants with an undamaged residence may request tickets to return home, but must provide convincing evidence their homes are ready for occupancy. No further travel tickets will be issued.
