Information on how you can donate and help in the recovery of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.

Help Puerto Rico Rebuild


PUERTO RICANS ARE AMERICANS, TOO

The devastation in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria is staggering and heartbreaking.

And it is inexcusable that there has been a lack of swift, decisive, and highly visible presidential and congressional action to help the 3.5 million Americans on the island.

We are urging everyone to contact their members of Congress and the administration to demand a comprehensive package that provides relief to our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico NOW.



HOW TO GET HELP IF YOU ARE A SURVIVOR

We urge survivors to register online at DisasterAssistance.gov | Español disasterassistance.gov/es

Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC): Survivors can visit the DRC Locator to find the closest location. More will open up as need is determined and flood waters recede. Survivors can speak with a FEMA rep in-person to request an update on registration and ask questions.



HOW YOU CAN HELP
