Months after Hurricane Harvey ravaged Southeast Texas, data is coming out in regards to what areas received more federal aid compared to others. Early data from the Episcopal Health Foundation showed that wealthier neighborhoods by zip code received more federal aid compared to lower income areas. However, the Health Foundation has yet to run the same analysis on new data.

“We didn’t produce the maps so we could say FEMA is good here and bad there, or different here and different there,” Elena Marks, President and C.E.O. of Episcopal Health Foundation said. The maps are meant to be used by funders and stakeholders in Harvey recovery to make better decisions on where to devote resources, she said.

The data was originally analyzed in December 2017.
