Leaders from Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition Call on Congress to Support Equitable Recovery for Puerto Rican People After Resignation of Governor

“Given the impact of the government of Puerto Rico in the Mitigation Plans and the Action Plan for the recovery of the island, Planners for Puerto Rico emphasizes the importance of Congress holding hearing with Puerto Rican leaders, community groups, and organizations to create a new oversight mechanism (e.g. a citizen’s commission) and make sure that federal funds for reconstruction will be spent efficiently to help communities in need and not to enrich political allies,” said Ivis Garcia, Planners for Puerto Rico.
