It now heads to the house where presley and her progressive colleagues say.

They're asking for a lot of things. I don't have them. So what ledesma hoping for is that. Even though her new rent will be more expensive she'll have a lease to give fema and get rental assistance. Sean is there something about the way. Famous application system is setup or designed that is causing so much confusion and leading to so many denials in particular people who seem to have really legitimate claims. There is a pattern to these kinds of things that trip people up people who are in even slightly unconventional living situations people like roommates married couples who have different last names people in trailer parks. We got documents from an internal fema survey over a thousand people. Last year complained about communication with the agency or didn't know why they were denied or in a couple of case. We're told they didn't live in the home that they've actually lived in almost their whole lives but then from his point of view they can't trust everyone who says they're paying rent in can't prove it. We've of course been speaking to fema about all this last week. The administrator deanne chriswell told congress that she knows they have work to do to make it easier to access for us. The big takeaway is that the system is just not designed for real people for example. The fire here in southern oregon wiped out several mobile home parks. The people living there were elderly or they didn't speak english as their primary language. This is a complicated system to navigate and people are expected to get every little detail and their application right or face a denial and then a long road to try to undo that which most of them just can't pull off april.

"Jefferson public radio in southern oregon looked closely at the wildfires last year in oregon to understand why it's so hard to get approved with me. Now are the reporters who worked on this story. Sean mcmahon is an npr data editor and april. Erlich is a reporter with jefferson public radio. Hello to you both. Hey good morning. Noel april let me begin with you. Remind us what happened in southern oregon last autumn. Yeah so last year over labor day weekend there were these huge wildfires. All over the west coast including one in southern oregon called the amita fire. It destroyed twenty six hundred homes and a few small towns including the one i live in. Firefighters actually created a fire line on the street that i live on so almost everything across the street from me is destroyed but my house is fine. So that's actually what got me started on this project. I kept hearing from people saying that. They were hitting roadblocks when they were trying to get disaster assistance from fema. I asked fema for more information. And i learned that. They denied seventy percent of applicants in oregon. So we started this project to really dig into why that denial rate was so high. Seventy percent in. This case in oregon sean. When you looked at that really large number of denials what did you find behind it yet. So that's seventy percent number is really interesting. Of course it seems high and if you look at the data compared to where we were about fifteen years ago around hurricane katrina it is it seems more and more people are getting denied now even as wildfires get worse but another thing to note is that that number does not include cases fema says were potentially fraudulent fraudulent applications made up almost half of those filed after the oregon fires with that men was fema had to figure out how to weed out people who are trying to take advantage of the system but what we found happened was the same measures they were using to weed people out. We're actually catching people who were real victims. Who really lost their homes and some of these people april you ended up speaking to. Yeah and what i was hearing from them was that they were getting denied from the system that has become so complicated or they got inaccurate information from fema representatives on the ground. People like jose messiahs who lost his home to the alameda fire. I met massias for his house was getting rebuilt in phoenix oregon about twenty miles north of the california border..

And there's also money to help cover the cost of rent or a hotel room and then sometimes fema brings in temporary trailers that you might have heard about an emergency housing. And what do we know about who ends up getting that money right. So that's the question. I've been asking for years now. Actually so all the way back in two thousand seventeen. I noticed that poor people seem to be struggling to get adequate help from fema and it was anecdotal and mostly noticed in houston after hurricane harvey back then there were some studies coming out that suggested that fema assistance was disproportionately benefiting whiter wealthier people.

Biden Addresses Wildfires, Record Heat Wave With Western Governors
"And several Cabinet members met with Western state governors virtually earlier today to talk about the wildfire season ahead as parts of the West deal with an intense heat wave and wild fires already burning. President Biden told Western state governors that climate change is making fires worse and year round. One of his ways to help, he said, is to pay federal firefighters $15 an hour I learned that some of our federal firefighters are being paid less than $13 an hour Come on, man.

They're planning to swear in. Joe biden folks. And that's what they're planning on doing so right wrong or indifferent. They're still planning on it so if something is to come out of this then there needs to be action fairly quickly and i know like the same like they say in business. Timing is everything. I totally totally get that. But they you have to realize that the american people were getting itchy. American people people in general don't have a lot of fucking patients to be honest with you. And because they don't they wanna see some action they wanna see people go away in handcuffs. I don't know if that will or won't happen. I've here both shit all over the place folks. I hear they're working behind the scenes or planning this elaborate operation blah blah blah blah blah. But you have to ask yourself a few things now. You have to ask yourself. Why are there so many troops in washington. dc some say the stop the writers. You don't need twenty thousand troops. There fully armed troops folks. You don't as soon as the gunshots starts. Most of these whiny bitchy Blm and antifa people will go home as soon as guns gun. Shots go off. They're not gonna do that. They're not in the military or even the national guard. They're not going to get shot at and they don't wanna get killed so that's the first point. The second point is why are there so many troops there. That's a good question. There's so many troops there because something is going to take place something very very very big. I understood that they are planning. And this is being coordinated by the fbi the bad people in the fbi the upper echelon up chalon people that the fbi is planning and they're planning at all major us capitals throughout the united states.

I don't know you you you hear. There's always so much bullshit going on all the time. So that's what you got understand. You know one side says the other side says that it's up to you when you have critical thinking to figure out what's going on so i can say right now is just hold the line. That's that's all.

"The money required to convert the energy contract convention center will be paid for by federal funds FEMA and the state and obviously given what we're doing with our employees and our own budget we will obviously make sure that we get all funds we are qualified for however we took that action today was city council because we didn't want there to be any delays you know everyone's working as hard as they could can but if there's a you know the federal government's obviously a large bureaucracy if there's any slowdown in spending or procurement or delays we ensured the National Guard you can use our money in order to move quickly and then of course we'll make sure we get reimbursed later and so we will be monitoring that situation daily and again at a big picture level you know well you know you those of you watching we've all been to the convention center a million times throughout our lives and looking at it today and realizing it's going to be converted to a hospital is just one of those incredible moments of holy moly what is happening life will continue to go on and there are some things that we have to do independent of the fact that so many of us can't work one of him one of which is the census I'm wearing a pen because today this is no April fools day joke today is literally census day once every ten years under the United States constitution we are required to conduct a census census this is incredibly important the more so now than when we thought we were planning for this couple months ago the amount of money that the federal government spends in our region on a variety of investments including prescription drug benefits for senior citizens on Medicare and Medicaid including the staff program including head start and many many many other things is directly tied to how many people are counted in the census I remember this isn't just a gift from Washington this is our money so we send money to Washington and we get a proportion back based on an accurate count of the census and so getting that number right is critical and obviously since we're not all going through a major economic downturn we want to maximize the money that we are entitled to this isn't asking a favor this is getting the money we're entitled to which only happens if we do an accurate count by all measurements over the last probably forever Cincinnati in our region have been undercounted undercounted which means we're not getting our own money back that we deserve and given the amount of pain that we will be going through economically we want to ensure that we do this time around it is also the case that for the first time in seventy years Cincinnati is going to show a population increase and one of the reasons among many that I believe our community will bounce back faster than many other communities in the Midwest is because unlike many communities and Midwest we are a rising tide were one of the very few that are rising in the midst of overall population decline throughout the Midwest and I say that because in these dark times I want people to realize that there is hope there will be a light at the end of the tunnel and we will move fast to that light and pass that light than most communities and part of that is accelerating that growth of our city and getting it accurately counted so that we will inspire other businesses and people around this country to want to locate here the census can be completed online by phone or by paper questionnaire it takes no more than ten minutes my wife Tina did it over the weekend it really was fairly easy okay see the website is my sense that my twenty twenty senses dot gov my twenty twenty census dot gov is the website please a please don't go make sure you do that.

"The supplies chain at FEMA to make sure that we're harnessing the full energy of the American government justice for harnessing a whole of government approach of the federal state and local level to confront the corona virus we've done starting last night as we reached out to our viewers all over America asking them to file questions with us and many of these questions come back by way of video so when you get to those right now and I I know in this interactive since we want to try and bring the American people the White House and vice versa that's that's why we're here today but let me let me respond on the ventilator issue just to be very clear the national stockpile as we indicated has some twenty thousand ventilators and we've been making those available to states particularly we have been focusing resources ventilators of masking gowns on the states most impacted those would be Seattle where the major first outbreak occurred California and really what what's become the epicenter of the corona virus the threat in this country in the state of New York and the greater New York City area including New Jersey we'll continue to prioritize those resources but the American people should understand and be encouraged to know that when it comes to ventilators which of those devices with when people reach a point with the corona virus for they have severe respiratory struggles but there are by most accounts for more than a hundred and fifty thousand respirators in in hospitals and clinics across the country today it's not merely was in the national stockpile bill but also because the president brought together the leaders of all of our medical groups in the country a week ago we were able to inform governors that the anesthesiologist have a piece of equipment that they use for outpatient surgery for administering anesthetics for anyone that's ever been put under and working quickly with the FTA we were able to inform governors that those devices can be quickly converted to respirators for corona virus people struggling with corona virus should be if you had to approve the change of a single event so yesterday again speaking with all the governors across the country we're calling on governors in every state to survey all their outpatient clinics and identify what we also know our today tens of thousands of ventilators that are available to meet this need going forward we're also pleased to know that General Motors working with the subsidiary has already made a commitment to re purpose some of their manufacturing line to create ventilators that we're seeing industry step up but I want the American people to know that are that because of our cooperation with medical professionals are on the country we're identifying only resources all new equipment that can be converted that can add that to the supply of tens of thousands of ventilators and will continue to meet this week but with creativity and with the resources of the Americans just want to give our viewers at home an opportunity get in on the site leadership the answer on that will come back to that a bit later here today Carlier from Merritt island Florida has the first question here is currently up on that right now we're just wondering what is the potential for national stay home order is this something that America could be seen in our near future the national stay at home order how much should you consider that Carly I can tell you that it no point is the White House corona virus taskforce discussed what some people call a nation wide lockdown or as you described.
