Yesterday, Congress agreed to provide $500 million in additional flood relief to Louisiana. With 144,288 people registered for FEMA assistance and too many still in shelters, Louisiana needs these resources.

Despite the need, it wasn’t clear the deal would come together as Congress struggled to agree on a budget to avoid a government shutdown. Your messages to lawmakers made a big difference.

Thank you for speaking up for an equitable recovery and helping to ensure Louisianans impacted by the flood get the support they deserve.
