CONTACT YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS TO SUPPORT H.R. 3238 DISASTER EQUITY ACT
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has made it very difficult for community associations to qualify for public assistance funds for recovery efforts after a Presidentially declared disaster. Following Super Storm Sandy (NJ) in 2012, Representatives Israel and Nadler introduced a bill to clarify community associations eligibility. Unfortunately, the bill did not pass. Following Hurricane Matthew (SC) last year, Representative Sanford joined leadership for the cause to sponsor the bill. CAI applauds his steadfast leadership in ensuring disaster relief fairness for community associations, as stated in a recent Active Advocacy Alert here.
Wherever you live, you can help by contacting your Member of Congress and asking them to sponsor H.R. 3238. Click here for more information and to take action.
