Event: Hurricane Charley Damage in Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, Florida
Subject Description: Visit of Secretary Alphonso Jackson to the Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, Florida area, where he viewed damage from Hurricane Charley and joined Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the Reverend Franklin Graham, and other dignitaries at the First Baptist Church in Port Charlotte to discuss disaster assistance measures. Among the HUD measures were the granting of a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures and forebearance of foreclosures of Federal Housing Administration-insured homes; HUD work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to identify vacant multi-family housing units, public housing units, and HUD-owned homes that could be used as temporary housing for citizens forced from their homes due to storm damage; and the release of $40 million to be made available to rebuild public housing in hard-hit areas under the jurisdiction of the Arcadia, Lake Wales, and Punta Gorda Housing Authorities.
