Summary Federal agencies have waived a number of regulatory requirements and extended the deadlines for certain reports and applications to assist victims of Hurricane Katrina and to ease the economic effects of the storm. Most of the actions were permitted by agency or program-specific authorizing statutes. More generally, though, Section 301 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act permits agencies to modify or waive administrative conditions for federal assistance in the wake of a major disaster upon the request of state or local authorities. This report identifies some (but not necessarily all) of those Katrina-related waivers and extensions, and will not be updated.

I’ve been looking into this and it did take Congress to get the waiver issued (attached to an Iraq bill or something). In any case, the point of requiring the matching funds is to prevent fraud and the Bush Administration was handing out boatloads of money anyway, not requiring them to put up money first (which is how I read it is supposed to happen).
Obama lies - who knew?
and the Daily Press ran cover for him. I told them years ago their filth wasn’t welcome in my home. Disgusting. Totally predictable, though.
I dont remember Obama rushing to give any money to the victims of the fires in Colorado..guess they were just too darn white for him..and let’s talk about Hurricane Isaac, it took Obama days to go to New Orleans and ONLY went because Romney said he was going to visit
