The Wichita County Judge has been doing some moving and shuffling in the county's storm shelter rebate program with FEMA.

The application process started in January for this program that will reimburse qualifying homeowners up to $3,200 who install a storm shelter.

To date, Judge Woody Gossom says his office has 500 program applications but funding for only 200 shelters.

He also says 112 approved applicants have built their storm shelters, three have asked to have their names moved to the end of the list, one decided to build his own shelter and 22 have withdrawn from the program.

Gossom says those withdrawals allow applicants on the waiting list to start the paperwork of getting their shelters built.

The county is still taking applications for this program.
