The Archdiocese of New Orleans has agreed to pay more than $1 million to resolve a lawsuit accusing it of submitting false claims to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for funds to repair buildings damage by Hurricane Katrina, according to the Department of Justice.

The archdiocese allegedly submitted false claims to cover the cost of repairs from the Category 5 hurricane that caused billions of dollars worth of damage to New Orleans and surrounding cities in August 2005. The claims were made between 2007 and 2013 and were prepared by AECOM, a Los Angeles-based engineering firm, according to the DOJ.
