MS Gets Money for Cottages
Administrators with the cottage program will look for the best-designed housing alternative. Barbour said he hopes to have 7,000 cottages built by this summer.
"Those on Mississippi's coast don't have to stay in FEMA trailers. They can have something larger, more comfortable and, most of all, safer and more secure," he said
The cottage would be used nationwide for any natural disasters. Barbour said at least 50 companies are expected to bid on the project.
The cottages are temporary. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has not decided how long families will be able to stay in them.
