Bill Sponsorship: Haiti Empowerment, Assistance, and Rebuilding Act
Source: H.R.3771
  • On January 12, 2010, Haiti suffered an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale, the greatest natural disaster in Haiti's history, which killed more than 300,000 people & left 2,300,000 people homeless;
  • Prior to the earthquake, Haiti was the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with an estimated 54% of its population living on less than $1 per day;
  • Although initial recovery efforts must continue to assist the people of Haiti struggling to secure basic necessities, including food, water, health care, shelter, and electricity, Haiti cannot afford to only focus on its immediate needs.
  • The circumstances following the earthquake in Haiti provide a real opportunity for Haiti to break the cycle of poverty, social inequality and unrealized expectations that has marked Haiti's history;
  • It is the policy of the United States, in partnership with the Government of Haiti and in coordination with the international community, to support the sustainable recovery and rebuilding of Haiti in a manner that encourages greater economic equality; embraces Haitian independence; incorporates the potential of both women and men to contribute equally; providing a foundation for economic growth and economic sustainability, through investments in essential infrastructure; [and in general] to promote long-term, sustainable rebuilding and development in Haiti.
