NEW ORLEANS - The Federal Emergency Management Agency is providing another $9.2 million to help southeast Louisiana recover from Hurricane Katrina.

St. Bernard Parish is getting back $1.4 million spent to demolish and remove thousands of houses that couldn't be repaired after the 2005 storm.

The largest grants are $3.3 million to repair flood and wind damage at Brown Hall on the Southern University at New Orleans campus, and nearly $3 million for a crane rail extension at the Port of New Orleans.

New Orleans is getting nearly $1.5 million to repair the administration building at the former Milne Boys Home. The building was used as a youth development and after-school center before the storm. The grants were announced in a news release from Sen. Mary Landrieu's office.
