The Government of Puerto Rico and the Puerto Rico Department of Housing (PRDOH) is proud to announce the launch of the Municipal Recovery Planning Program (MRP, por sus siglas en ingles). This Program allocates funding to municipalities to carry out planning activities that address conditions created or exacerbated by Hurricanes Irma and 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.
MRP will complement other programs described in the Action Plan, as amended, by identifying projects, programs and policies necessary for recovery, as well as increasing communities’ funding and their capacity to forecast and assign applicable needs to promote city revitalization, critical infrastructure recovery, economic development and workforce training.
FOR THIS PROGRAM, PRDOH WILL PROVIDE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO THE 78 MUNICIPALITIES WITHIN PUERTO RICO.
Grant recipients must be any of Puerto Rico’s seventy-eight (78) Municipalities.
A letter will be sent to municipalities with information regarding the application process.
