End Discrimination of FEMA against Coop Housing

Help the passage of H.R. 2887 (Rep. Israel) to end the arbitrary discrimination by FEMA of denying grants to House Coops because they classify them as a 'Business'.

Why is this important?

Our building complex sits two blocks from the East River in Manhattan and is in a class "1" flood zone. During Sandy we were inundated by flood waters reaching 3-5 feet, inflicting hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage which is home for nearly one thousand residents who are mostly working class families or retirees on fixed incomes. Our co-op is based on Mitchell-Lama laws that ensure it remains working and middle class housing, yet we bore all the costs of this disaster.

Reasons for signing

  • I strongly oppose article 11. I served on the Board nearly 12 years. I resigned February 2018 & know this would be a horrible mistake I honestly don’t understand why HPD decided this was a good idea. This article 11 needs to be abolished. We need Congress to get involved and stop this nonsense which makes no sense at all
  • DOWN WITH FEMA CAMPS! FEMA CAMPS ARE EVIL! THE USA GOVERNMENT CAN GO FUCK ITSELF! PROTEST THE FEMA CAMPS, NO TO BEING LOCKED AWAY! DOWN WITH FEMA CAMP CONTROLISM!
