FEMA has issued its own report, 16 pp., titled Katrina/Rita The 5th Commemoration, August 29, 2010 September 24, 2010. It is a short, bland account of the program areas — individual assistance, public assistance, hazards mitigation, environmental and historic preservation…. Too bad the agency did not make the effort to truly assess its performance and to identify the improvements needed in its recovery approach and framework.
