Sandy

A third of the money raised by the Red Cross for victims of Superstorm Sandy remains unspent seven months later.

FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy reports from New York:

The Red Cross says keeping $110 million of the $303 million raised will help address victims' needs that were not immediately met after the storm. But critics say the money should be given to local organizations that are in a better position to identify need and disperse the funds properly since the Red Cross isn't a long term building agency.

Red Cross officials pledged all the money will eventually be spent and not diverted to other disasters or used for operational costs.

Editor's Note: The Red Cross expects to spend $27 million of the remaining funds providing "move-in assistance grants" of up to $10,000 to displaced families. About 2,000 families have been assisted so far and 4,000 are awaiting to be deemed eligible.
