Alabama housing plan to aid Katrina victims

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs director Bill Johnson says the families, mostly in southwest Alabama, could remain in their travel trailers and mobile homes under a state plan to transfer ownership from the federal government to a faith-based community organization.

The organization has not yet been chosen but the plan calls for FEMA to donate the housing stock to the state as surplus.

ADECA will then transfer it to the faith-based organization, which would allow the occupants to remain where they are "with minimal disruption" to their lives, Johnson said.
