Matters Under Review MUR. When victims of disaster question why, I assist with oversight.
Rules, guidance, process, laws and procedures are put in place to assist and be helpful to those recovering from disasters. But when rules and process are not followed what do you do and who do you question why?
I will be presenting to the Task Force the increased or decreased costs to homeowners after the disaster. I am looking to identify any possible remaining options to assist homeowners with unmet needs based on the increased cost of living.
What does the S. 3041 Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018 which was once called H.R. 4460 - Disaster Recovery Reform Act do for homeowners with SBA Loans? In our opinion, nothing, but if you have news that will help we are listening.

When you are navigating the federal disaster assistance agencies your first stop should be to the TruckAndTools.Com Disaster Resources. Every disaster agency uses the same process but not every disaster agency follows strict policy and guidance. Don't go into your disaster recovery with blind trust of your federal and state agencies that are leading the push to get you sheltered and out of the program.

Better watch it, Not for Profit building companies are in fact a Duplication of Benefits so you best ask if you could hire them before you go thinking you have a great deal. You never know what new rule is going to be enforced.
