(San Juan, P.R) – The Puerto Rico Department of Housing (PRDOH) announced that the Repair, Reconstruction, or Relocation (R3) Program will suspend its activities and projects while Governor Wanda Vázquez-Garced’s Executive Order 2020-23 is in effect, which covers the period from March 15 to March 31, when activities will return unless new circumstances arise.

“We thank the R3 taskforce, which remains committed to promoting the Island’s rebuilding. However, it is imperative that we cease all activities until March 30, in accordance with Governor Vázquez-Garced’s executive order and in order to prevent the spread of this disease among the program’s employees and participants,” stated PRDOH’s secretary, Luis Fernández-Trinchet.

The suspension of efforts includes all field operations; in other words, all project construction work and intake center activities, among others.

Program employees must contact all relevant persons for additional instructions.
