    Nuevo Reporte de Sandy: Más de 15.000 Familias esperan por la Reconstrucción.

    Posted by Adam Gordon

    Contratiempos en los despliegues iniciales siguen obstaculizando el progreso.

    En el Segundo reporte anual del Estado de la Recuperación de Sandy publicado hoy, defensores de vivienda y de derechos civiles encontraron que la recuperación de Nueva Jersey luego de Sandy está muy lejos de ser completada, y recomendaron una serie de reformas para otorgar mayor transparencia y efectividad en los programas de recuperación de Nueva Jersey. El Fair Share Housing Center (FSHC), la Latino Action Network (LAN), y la Asociación Nacional para el Progreso de las Personas de Color (NAACP por sus siglas en inglés) seccional de Nueva Jersey, encontraron que más de 15.000 familias siguen esperando para poder reconstruir y tienen poca claridad acerca de cuándo dicho proceso será completado.
