Danbury officials are coordinating with the surrounding Health Departments and providing updates on the numbers and status of evacuees to the State. There are nine families with 12 new students in the Danbury School system who are Puerto Rico evacuees.
Five families who fled the island territory after their homes were destroyed by hurricanes have reached out to the City's Health Department for assistance in obtaining housing. The Department has been working with FEMA and the Danbury Housing Authority to obtain housing for these families.
Currently, two families are staying in La Quinta, funded by FEMA, and one family is being placed in a Danbury Housing Authority apartment. The remaining two families have been given information on how to obtain housing.
