I compiled the ATS threads here, but I yet to see a topic about American cities and states offering aid.
I did see some corporate help.
Maybe if folks see article as domestic aid, they can post it here.

Here's my input, about the City of Detroit:

Kilpatrick said he has been working with Alphonso Jackson, the secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and other White House officials to find local housing for evacuees.

"We have told the federal government that we here in the city of Detroit are willing to step up and accept evacuees from both Louisiana and Mississippi," Kilpatrick said.

The Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau and local hotel owners have also been meeting with city officials and have determined that about 2,000 to 3,000 rooms would be available for hurricane victims, according to the mayor.
