HR 592 Federal DIsaster Assistance for Nonprofits

Rep. Nita Lowey

February 13, 2013

Religious institutions are an integral part of American communities and play an important role in assisting devastated neighborhoods revitalize and rebuild. After natural disasters, they provide both material and non-material help to those in need. Since there is no constitutional impediment to providing disaster relief to religious institutions, they should be treated like other vital nonprofits and receive federal assistance without prejudice or discrimination. HR 592 will ensure that religious institutions obtain the full measure of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster relief funds. Please support this legislation.
