House Approves Emergency Hurricane and Wildfire Funding Legislation
October 12, 2017 - The U.S. House today passed legislation to provide $36.5 billion in emergency funding for hurricane and wildfire relief and recovery (H.Res. 569) on a vote of 353-69. The bill will now move to the Senate for approval. The legislation fully funds the requests submitted to Congress from the Administration. It includes $18.7 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Disaster Relief Fund (DRF), $576.5 million for wildfire-fighting efforts, and $16 billion for debt relief for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which now needs additional funds to make necessary insurance claims payments to individuals. In addition, it includes a provision for the Disaster Nutrition Assistance Program (DNAP) that enables low-income residents in Puerto Rico to receive the same emergency nutrition assistance that other hurricane-affected states already receive.
