Transitional Sheltering Assistance

  • A FEMA program that’s been helping Puerto Rican families that have been living in hotels and motels has been extended for a few more weeks. Advocates have been going to court to seek more assistance. Denise Collazo, Chief of Staff of an advocacy group called Faith in Action, and Bob Cortes, Republican state representative, join us to talk about the outlook for these evacuees.
  • A federal judge’s order has extended FEMA temporary housing assistance for Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria for three more weeks. Hundreds of families are still living in hotels and motels after Hurricane Maria forced them to leave their homes.
