Protect housing for 2300 Puerto Rican families

Official Action for Friday, June 8

This weekend has plenty of opportunities to canvas for the 2018 midterms. See the bottom half of this message for more information.

2300 families are still displaced from Hurricane Maria, and on June 30, government funding for their temporary housing will expire. That is when FEMA’s Transitional Shelter Assistance Program will end. The Housing Victims of Major Disasters Act is being introduced in both the House and the Senate in order to extend emergency housing as Puerto Rico continues to rebuild. Call our representatives and tell them to support this bill!
