FEMA Grant To Oregon Sets Up Fire Disaster Case Management
Governments at all levels are still working to meet the considerable needs of the thousands of people burned out of their homes and businesses in the September fires. And there are movements between levels, as well.
The federal agency FEMA recently granted $6.3 million to the state of Oregon, to help manage the individual cases of people and families affected by the fires. The disaster case management program is meant to provide wraparound services, ensuring that fire victims get their needs met.
The state Department of Human Services will oversee the program. Ed Flick and Micah Goettl from ODHS visit with details.
