Judge Extends Temporary Shelter Assistance Program through August 31

FEMA’s Temporary Shelter Assistance (TSA) hotel-stay program has again been extended through August 31 for survivors of Hurricane Maria, in response to a lawsuit brought forward by Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition (DHRC) member LatinoJustice PRLDEF. U.S. District Judge Timothy Hillman ruled to extend a Temporary Restraining Order to suspend the termination of the program until a formal ruling can be made in response to oral arguments offered on August 1. This is the fourth extension of TSA for Hurricane Maria survivors. NLIHC and the DHRC urge Congress to pass legislation to provide longer-term housing assistance for survivors of Hurricane Maria, such as the Disaster Housing Assistance Program.
