• Document Name: Duplication of Benefits Policy
  • Description: The Puerto Rico Department of Housing (PRDOH), as grantee, is committed to the responsible management of the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated these funds to address Puerto Rico’s long-term recovery needs caused by Hurricanes Irma and María, both in September of 2017. In doing so, PRDOH has developed a comprehensive program portfolio consisting of Housing, Economic Recovery, Infrastructure, Planning, and Multisector Programs, to help rebuild families and communities, and generate a long-term investment in social capital, fortify the economy, and set the stage for stability and continuity in government modernization and efficiency. In the process of fulfilling those commitments with the citizens of Puerto Rico through the implementation of the above-mentioned programs, PRDOH and its Subrecipients must ensure that CDBG-DR funds are being disbursed to meet an unmet recovery need and that funds are not duplicative of benefits provided by other federal, state, local, and private sources.
