Breaking: We won Puerto Rico Disaster Relief


We won!

Since Hurricanes Irma and Maria decimated Puerto Rico in 2017, we've generated tens of thousands of calls and emails that moved Congress to pass disaster relief for Puerto Rico.

In recent months, your actions generated thousands of messages that convinced President Trump and the Senate to pass $19.1 billion for US States and Territories recovering from disasters in Puerto Rico, Iowa, California, Florida, Nebraska and Guam.

As we faced obstacles at the White House, Senate and House of Representatives - you never took "no" for an answer. Because of your actions - we won.

Next week Puerto Rico faces the next phase of debt restructuring and it could be over in less than 6 months. Now that we've won more disaster relief - we now need your support to win debt relief. For the next week all donations to Jubilee USA are doubled by an anonymous donor. Please make a tax-deductible donation to Jubilee USA today.

The legislation we just passed includes $600 million in emergency food assistance for Puerto Rico benefiting more than a million people. In total more than $900 million in disaster assistance for Puerto Rico passed the House and Senate. We also expedited the release of $8.9 billion we already won for Puerto Rico disaster relief.

We have a commitment after 6 months of work from President Trump to sign disaster assistance into law.

We are so grateful for your partnership - your partnership continues to make the impossible, possible. Your support makes the unattainable - attainable.
