So if my tax money goes to repair your house, we should all be able to use your house afterwards?

FEMA does not pay to replace your house. They typically don't even pay enough for all the repairs necessary, although they may give you enough to get some basic systems going, or perhaps house you for some period if your home is uninhabitable.

I suspect they might help a gated community clear downed trees and power lines, but if the community has decided the streets are private, then they ought not be fully repaired with public monies unless the public can use them.
