Adam –
You made a great point in yesterday's meeting regarding the need for Louisiana to request flood relief assistance from the EDA. Can you give me additional background information on the kinds of relief requested after Katrina or what you envision our request should be?

I'll see if we can find what they did after Katrina and Rita. I don't recall specifics. Garrett Graves had brought it up to us a few weeks ago that he was contemplating an economic development appropriation request through EDA. I’m not sure if they are still trying to venture in that direction, and will check with Paul.

I'm checking with Adrienne. I don't remember an EDA grant, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Carpenters and Carpenter helpers.

I am asked often if I would do carpentry work in my area. I'm getting too slow to actually handle most of the jobs I'm asked to do. I'd like to handoff the work to a carpenter that's better than me.

Contribute when you can.

For some households, the information I provide helps them get back in their homes. Others I've had a hand in helping them recovery from some of their disaster debt burden. In any case, when you use the information I provide and it's helpful and makes you more successful with your disaster rebuild or new construction then feel free to contribute what you can and when you can. It helps with the hours of unpaid research and reading.
