U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Gov. Haley Barbour and attorneys who filed the lawsuit announced Monday that $132 million will now be available for storm victims who didn't qualify for previous housing programs.

Mississippi Development Authority spokesman Lee Youngblood says the programs target the elderly, poor and property owners whose homes suffered wind damage.

Youngblood says residents have until Jan. 31 to apply for the assistance.

    It's about time. How long will it be before Barbour takes this money for his business friends.
