Press Release Federation of Regulatory Counsel Donates Funds to Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Effort Minneapolis, MN - February 1, 2018 - The Federation of Regulatory Counsel (FORC), a national non-profit organization of insurance regulatory attorneys, announced its donation to the Court Families Assistance Fund to support the Puerto Rican court community impacted by Hurricane Maria. The Court Families Assistance Fund was initially established in 2001 to assist the court community impacted by the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. Subsequently the fund has been used to support court employees and their families impacted by Hurricanes Katrina, Sandy, and now, Hurricane Maria. The FORC donation will be used to provide Puerto Rican court personnel and their families with immediate financial assistance and will be distributed for necessary expenses associated with shelter, food, clothing, and medical care. The donation is given in honor of FORC Board Member Ralph Rexach whose legal office, Rexach & Pico, is located in San Juan. FORC is hopeful the donation will make a difference in the lives of those who work in the Puerto Rican court community. FEMA and Oxfam continue to work on recovery efforts. FEMA’s recovery efforts in Puerto Rico may be tracked online at status.pr. Those FORC members and/or their companies and law firms who may be interested in making their own additional, private contributions to the fund, may do so at this link http://www.nycourts.gov/fcny/.
