(August 6, 2020- Orlando, F.L.) – The Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration of Puerto Rico (PRFAA) in Orlando, Florida, in collaboration with the Authorities of the City of Kissimmee in the Osceola County, Florida announced the renewal of the agreement signed in December 2019. This agreement will enable the government to serve hundreds of citizens residing in one of the main cities and counties with the largest Puerto Rican population in that State.

“When we had the opportunity to meet with the Mayor of Kissimmee José Álvarez and the local authorities of the County, we reiterated our commitment to work hand- in-hand with local governments to continue supporting and improving services to the Puerto Rican community in Florida, ” said Jennifer M. Storipan, Esq.

For his part, Anthony Carrillo, Esq., Regional Director of PRFAA’s Florida Office said that with the departure of PRFAA from the city of Kissimmee in 2018, many Puerto Ricans didn’t have access to services and had difficulty traveling to receive the services particularly, our senior citizens.
