The U.S. Agency for International Development on Thursday announced it will give $32 million in humanitarian assistance to Haiti following the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck on Aug. 14.

State of play: USAID administrator Samantha Power said the aid will support those affected by the earthquake, per the Miami Herald. The organization said in a press release it will also help humanitarian partners deliver "urgently needed aid" such as health care services, food and water.

  • The U.S. previously donated food and relief supplies, as well as sent in military assistance and disaster assistance response teams.

By the numbers: The earthquake killed more than 2,200 people and left another 12,000 people injured.

What they're saying: "This funding announcement will support humanitarian partners delivering urgently-needed aid, including health care services, emergency shelter and food, safe drinking water, hygiene and sanitation assistance, and protection services, including gender-based violence prevention and response, child protection, and psychosocial support services in hard-hit areas of southwestern Haiti," the USAID said in a press release.

  • "The United States remains committed to supporting the Government of Haiti’s response to this devastating disaster and continues to work urgently to deliver aid to the Haitian people during their time of need."

More evictions ahead for Minnesotans behind on rent

Another wave of Minnesotans who are behind on their rent could face evictions this week.

What's happening: Starting Tuesday, property owners can end leases for any legal reason and file to evict tenants who are behind on rent but haven't applied to the state's rent assistance program.

  • Landlords are required to give 15-day notice.

Why it matters: Evictions destabilize families and have financial repercussions that make it difficult to rent in the future.

  • Landlords, meanwhile, argued this summer that the ongoing protections were putting them in a tough spot, especially when it came to evicting problematic tenants.

After failing to get a deal on other planned tax increases, key Senate Democrats are pivoting to a billionaires' income tax to pay for President Biden's social spending.

The big picture: No advanced economy has attempted anything similar on such a scale.
