massive public outcry in opposition, the Department of Education is ignoring Congressional and stakeholder input, and is moving forward with an incredibly unfair process for colleges and universities to apply for and access disaster aid funding. On April

letter expressing our concerns and providing suggestions for how the Department could modify its process so that it is more responsive to Puerto Rico’s uniquely desperate situation.
