So far, 70 residential properties have been purchased through the disaster-recovery buyout grants, 32 with funds from Community Development Block Grant, and six with funds from the Community Disaster Grant.

Approximately 59 properties in the Parkview Terrace and Taft Speedway area have been demolished.
