FEMA Funds for Roadwork in Carrollton?

The City hosted a presentation in October 2013 on Street Repairs:

on p. 69 the "Road to Recovery Program" is outlined:

This is part of a larger City-wide, multi-year infrastructure repair/recovery effort funded by FEMA.
 The intent of the Recovery Roads Program is to restore the roads and sidewalks in the City to their pre-Katrina condition. 
Only damage directly attributed to Hurricane Katrina as determined by FEMA on minor (non-federal) streets is eligible for repair under this program. 
This program will be managed on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis.

Though the intended audience was contractors and such – Neighborhoods have not been given a similar presentation.

Looks like the Carrollton Area is not included in the priority list for FEMA funded projects.

Although according to p.8, the Carrollton area is awaiting a "new PW [project worksheet]. So it may be that FEMA has not yet approved work for this area yet.

Yet p.71 says:

All 72 neighborhood assessments have been completed as of Spring 2012.

So... are there funds or aren't their funds for Carrollton?

And for what kinds of "repairs"?

And, if you are still unsure, know that you are in good company.
