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.
