Congressman Curbelo Urges FEMA to Extend Transitional Shelter Assistance for Monroe County

Congressman Carlos Curbelo (FL) urged FEMA on March 9 to extend the Transitional Shelter Assistance (TSA) Program for Monroe County residents beyond March 11.  The letter to FEMA Secretary Brock Long cited Governor Rick Scott’s estimate of 10,000 of the Keys’ 75,000 residents as homeless after Hurricane Irma made landfall. Mr. Curbelo stated, “This program (TSA), which provides short-term lodging assistance to disaster survivors dislocated from their homes, has been a critical component of the hurricane recovery effort in the Florida Keys.”
