Ah, I suppose that's a reference to FEMA. We have a regular homeowner's policy (fire, theft, liability, etc.) on an island home through a risk pool, but when it was partially destroyed by a hurricane, FEMA stopped by and offered us an obscene amount of taxpayer money for repairs. They've actually done that on several occasions throughout the years we've owned it (roof repairs due to storm damage, etc.). Probably their SOP throughout most of the country.
