The U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development says the federal government has changed hurricane benefits to give Mississippi the flexibility to turn temporary housing into permanent housing.
Secretary Shaun Donovan held a news conference Friday at the Hope VI public housing development. It was nearly completed when Hurricane Katrina hit Biloxi.
Mississippi's Gulf coast Housing Director, Gerald Blessey, says that now, past federal housing assistance won't be subtracted from future assistance. He also said another 2,400 rental vouchers are coming to Mississippi.
