6 Investigates: Frustrated with FEMA

Posted: Updated:

On the heels of our report into FEMA's direct housing program, a Rockport woman tells 6 Investigates she received a FEMA trailer through the same program - right down to the specific lot number and location - only to be told at the last minute that she didn't qualify, after all.

Tabatha Castro says she lost everything in Harvey, including the mobile home she and her husband purchased years ago. Now living on FEMA housing assistance, Castro says the FEMA home was a chance at a fresh start for herself and her four children.

But, everything changed when a direct housing representative called Monday to give her the bad news: the mobile home they'd selected for her was not going to her, after all.

"Something good since Harvey was happening - something good was finally happening," she tells 6 Investigates. "And they took it away."

Here's the report:
