Fund Relief, Medicaid for Puerto Rico and USVI


We need your help. Senate leaders say they are close to a budget deal to avert another government shutdown. ‎While the House approved a budget package on Tuesday, the Senate is still deliberating on a number of issues including disaster relief and Medicaid funding for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Eric LeCompte our executive director has continued to meet with Republican and Democratic leadership in Congress. Puerto Rico's Archbishop Roberto O. González Nieves, OFM and Evangelical Leader, Reverend Heriberto Martínez continue to urge Congress to act for their people. The islands are facing a humanitarian crisis that is affecting millions of American citizens.

Please email your representatives today to ensure that "Better Building" provisions are part of the package along with equal access to Medicare, Medicaid and child tax benefits for all citizens no matter where they live. As the debate continues, your voice can help us tip the scales on behalf of all those who so desperately need help.

We must work together to ensure that the budget deal includes a package for our brothers and sisters still suffering from the natural disasters.
