Puerto Rico is struggling under its burden of debt, and never received enough disaster funding in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Just this week, "The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a Washington D.C.-based think tank, analyzed statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and found that Puerto Ricans enrolled in the Nutrition Assistance for Puerto Rico will begin to face deep food aid cuts in March unless the program receives more funding." The Governor of PR, Ricardo Rosselló ( a graduate of the University of Michigan), has sent a letter to Congress urging "swift Congressional action on H.R. 268," to provide desperately needed relief.
Contact your Members of Congress and ask them to support Governor Rosselló.
