All Puerto Rican families displaced by Hurricane Maria must now be checked out of government-funded housing.

There are 42 such families living in New York State, and nearly 1,800 nationwide.

A federal judge denied a request last month to continue the Transitional Sheltering Assistance program.

Astrid Lopez, who has been living in the U.S. since January, says she isn't sure what's next. 

"Every month, FEMA has given us less and less time for us to stay here, and most of us are in depression, most of us are already sick, emotionally, and right now, we have nowhere, nothing to do," she said.

"FEMA says, 'Oh, go call the 1-800 national hotline of the Red Cross or call 311,' just very generic answers that aren't useful for people who are literally facing homelessness," said Natasha Lycia Ora Bannan, associate counsel with Latino Justice.

Hurricane Maria made landfall nearly a year ago. 

The housing assistance program was set up to help aid those forced off the island.  

It was originally set to expire in June, but was extended several times.
