Court Requires FEMA to Again Extend Transitional Shelter Assistance for Hurricane Maria Survivors

A federal judge has instructed FEMA to again temporarily extend its Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program for displaced survivors of Hurricane Maria. The extension is designed to provide more time for the court to make its final decision on an injunction related to ending the program. A court hearing is projected to be scheduled on August 1 with an anticipated ruling by August 6.  FEMA has announced that TSA’s provision of short-term housing in hotels and has been extended to Tuesday, August 7. FEMA’s Transportation Assistance program - which covers the cost of airfare, luggage and pet fees for displaced individuals to return to Puerto Rico - has also been extended through August 30.
