Homeowners in Orange denied 23 times in FEMA appeal

Homeowners in Orange denied multiply times in FEMA appeal

Ten months after Tropical Storm Harvey a family in Orange continues living in a FEMA trailer.

FEMA granted the family the trailer and nearly $11,000.

Elizabeth Ansley says she hired a contractor to work on her parents' home as FEMA requested, and received an estimate of $37,000.

The funds weren't enough to cover repairs, forcing her to appeal 23 times, and each time she was denied.

The family received a final letter from FEMA stating the appeal will not be reviewed again.

Ansley has turned to Facebook for volunteer assistance.
