More than 200 Organizations Send Letter Urging Senate Leaders to Include DHAP in FAA Reauthorization Act

NLIHC and 212 organizations from the NLIHC-led Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition sent a letter on May 11 to Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chair Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Ranking Member Claire McCaskill (D-MO) urging them to include provisions for the Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP) in the Senate version of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act. The recently passed House version of this bill contained several disaster-related provisions but failed to include DHAP – a proven program to provide stable, longer-term housing assistance for survivors along with wrap-around case management services to help people recover.
