New York Stands With Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands


Following the devastation from Hurricane Maria, Governor Cuomo launched the Empire State Relief and Recovery effort, bringing together a wide range of civic, business and industry partners to provide critical personnel, supplies and expertise to help the people of Puerto Rico recover and rebuild.

New York helped Puerto Rico create their $94.4 billion Build Back Better Plan — a comprehensive plan to rebuild the island's infrastructure with the resiliency to withstand future storms. But this plan continues to be roadblocked by Congress.

The Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort will continue to support Puerto Rico with supplies and other resources, but the federal government must act immediately to fully fund a comprehensive recovery program.

Don't let Congress ignore Puerto Rico any longer. Make your voice heard.

Speaker Paul Ryan – (202) 225-0600
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – (202) 224-2541

Call and tell them to support the Build Back Better Plan for Puerto Rico.
