Advocates Call for Urgent Action in Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands

NLIHC and more than 540 national, state, and local organizations sent a letter to President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi calling for urgent action to address the “growing humanitarian crisis” in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The organizations pressed the White House and Congress to provide immediate relief to the people of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and to ensure that federal housing recovery and rebuilding efforts are complete and equitable for all individuals and communities impacted by the devastation of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
