A recent study suggests communities with large minority populations often receive less money from FEMA than mostly white communities. Many residents and minority communities affected by Hurricane Ian say help has been slow to arrive, leaving people to fend for themselves.
FEMA says it considers several factors when deciding aid requests, including property value, which is often lower in minority neighborhoods.
President Biden met with survivors of Hurricane Ian yesterday during a stop in Florida. His message to those impacted by the storm was the government is ready to help.
The death toll in Florida is already over 100.
