While we may not know the full extent of the damage caused by Hurricane Ida or the California wildfires, our thoughts immediately turn to the most vulnerable segments of our population: low-income families and those who risk displacement from their homes.
The Council of Large Public Housing Authorities and its entire membership supports providing assistance in every way we can to colleagues, partners, friends, and housing residents who have been affected by the devastation caused by Hurricane Ida and the wildfires in California.
From Texas Public Radio:
Lack of water and power has not made weathering the recent winter storm easy in San Antonio.
Some Texans have lost all power, some are without water, and many are lining up outside H-E-Bs across the state to buy food, propane and bottled water.
There are a few warming centers in the city, including two prepared by the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA).
From the Virgin Islands Housing Authority's press release:
Former Tutu High Rise and Donoe residents displaced by Hurricanes Marilyn, Irma and Maria will have first option to apply for new hurricane-resistant, energy-independent residential community.
From the St. Thomas Source:
The cutting of a ribbon on Thursday to celebrate the reconstruction of a senior center on St. John had significance beyond that of an obligatory civic ritual.
More than three years after the devastating storms of 2017, Thursday’s event represents the culmination of hard work and collaboration among multiple territorial agencies, the federal government and the private sector to reach an important milestone.
