For the hundreds of thousands affected by Ike, FEMA announced the Transitional Sheltering Program on Tuesday.
FEMA has arranged for some hotel and motel chains to house evacuees and the agency is billed directly for the rooms.
FEMA says Hurricane Ike victims who qualify can stay at a hotel or motel until October 14.
Evacuees should register with FEMA to see if they can receive the temporary assistance.
