I don't think this is a bad idea.

Religious-label-blind, ideology-blind political-affiliation-blind reimbursement sounds fair to me, too.
Agreed. Perhaps non-religious groups are already re-imbursed? I don't know but I would imagine there'd be an unholy sh*tstorm if they weren't.
If I were a religious group that aided storm victims, I wouldn't want to be reimbursed........that's part of a churches ministry. I purchased several hundred dollars worth of clothes for a displaced family from Katrina that are living up here in Little Rock, I wouldn't accept reimbursement for that.
But wouldn't the reimbursement make it possible for you to do more with it?
I agree with you that it is not an act of charity, if you "count" on reimbursement, but I will be thrilled to see that at least that much of "federal" fund will be used for good cause through me with *twice* the value (with reimbursement) rather than to making more weapons-of-mass-destruction delivery system.
If people would use their reimbursement for helping others, that's cool - but you're right it's not charity if you're counting on getting reimbursed.
