FEMA Would Lose Almost $900 Million With Sequester
Submitted by Cheston Catalano
FEMA now has a $14.8 billion budget, but that could change.
Should the sequester take effect, the White House estimates that the agency would lose about $878 million, largely from programs that provide direct relief to disaster victims. That said, whether or not the sequester goes into effect, Congress has also provided new emergency funding for disaster relief thanks to the debt-ceiling deal.
