CDBG-DR Funds

Allocation: $56,050,508

This Program allocates funding to municipalities to carry out planning activities that address conditions created or exacerbated by Hurricanes Irma and/or María. Planning activities will conclude in Municipal Recovery Plans serving as guidance to developing more resilient communities within the seventy-eight (78) Municipalities of Puerto Rico.

MUNICIPAL RECOVERY PLANNING PROGRAM

The Municipal Recovery Planning (MRP) under the Puerto Rico Department of Housing (PRDOH) was created to respond to current and future municipal needs in areas affected by Hurricanes Irma and/or Maria. The Program provides funds to municipalities to undertake planning activities to address conditions created or exacerbated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The planning process will culminate with the preparation of Recovery Plans that will serve as a guide to develop more resilient communities in Puerto Rico’s municipalities, which will have technical assistance provided by the Department of Housing.

INDIVIDUAL SPECIALIZED PLANNING ANALYSIS

The Specialized and Individual Planning Analysis is intended to address essential or desirable planning needs and activities, at the municipal level, identified during Individual Municipal Planning that require additional efforts, professional/specialized services and/or highly technical planning analysis or activities for the development of future recovery and/or mitigation strategies.

REGIONAL MUNICIPAL PLANNING

The Regional Municipal Recovery Planning provides the opportunity for municipalities, participating consortia and other municipal entities incorporated under the Puerto Rico Municipal Code to submit a proposal for a planning study that addresses regional challenges in Puerto Rico. Municipalities interested in Regional Planning Activities must be participants in the MRP Program. If the area of activity is linked to an immediate unmet need, these groups or consortia may receive a direct allocation for planning purposes. For requirements, access the Program Guidelines.
