FEMA Gave $30M Contract to FL Company That Failed to Deliver a Single Tarp to Puerto Rico

HeadlineNov 29, 2017

Meanwhile, the Associated Press reports that FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, gave more than $30 million in contracts to a newly created Florida company which failed to deliver any aid to Puerto Rico. Bronze Star, LLC was supposed to provide emergency tarps and plastic sheeting for repairs, but never delivered any supplies. FEMA canceled the contract without paying any of the money. But the months-long delay in getting tarps to people in Puerto Rico means many homes have been further and unnecessarily damaged by rainfall after the hurricane.
