The Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG – DR) Program is responsible to assure decent affordable housing opportunities, provision of services, assistance to the most vulnerable in our communities, the expansion and conservation of jobs.

The funds of this Program come from the Disaster Recovery Program for community development of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to grant support disaster recovery activities, including housing redevelopment and rebuilding.

The Department of Housing of Puerto Rico has been designated as the entity responsible for administering this grant that will help in the recovery from disasters caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria of 2017; this includes long-term recovery, restoration of housing, economic infrastructure, and revitalization.
