OLGT 2017-82B: Applications as a Result of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria


On August 25, 2017 Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas. Approximately a week later Hurricane Irma hit several Caribbean islands before making landfall in Florida. On September 20, 2017, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. 
While the full extent of damages and loss has not yet been realized, the severity of these storms has made it necessary for people to evacuate the devastated areas. Some evacuees have sought out family and friends in Massachusetts. 

The purpose of this Online Guide Transmittal is to advise staff about procedural changes for verifying duplicate participation for individuals and families from Puerto Rico who apply for TAFDC and EAEDC
