Disaster Assistance Equity Act (HR 5337)


CAI supports the Disaster Assistance Equity Act of 2019 (H.R. 5337) because it:

  • Allows FEMA's Individuals and Households Assistance Program to provide assistance to condominium unit homeowners for critical common element repairs after a natural disaster.
