The move comes as the administration is weighing a potential $1 trillion stimulus package to help the nation recover from a massive natural disaster that has killed more than 300 people.
The White House has also been weighing a possible $1.6 trillion stimulus plan, a senior administration official told reporters on Monday.
But it is not clear when that will be finalized, and officials said Monday that there are no details on the proposed spending.
Trump said earlier this week that he will not ask Congress for another $1 billion to help with recovery.
That could come as soon as next week.
