Judge Extends FEMA Housing Program For Evacuees Of Hurricanes Maria And Irma:


“The complaint cites continued aid given to victims of Hurricane Harvey, which struck Texas in August 2017 — a month before Maria hit the Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory.

“While hundreds of Hurricane Harvey victims remain sheltered in hotels and motels and thousands more are safe in alternate housing arrangements made by or through FEMA, the agency seeks to evict” Hurricane Maria survivors from the current homes, it reads.

“Lawyers for displaced families argue the federal agency’s conduct violates Section 308 of the Stafford Act, “which requires nondiscrimination in disaster assistance,” according to court documents.“
