This document includes an analysis of the first calculation of damages and reports on the preliminary design of the 19 initial programs that will meet the urgent needs of Housing, Planning, Economic Recovery and Infrastructure.
The Action Plan was approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on July 29, 2018. However, amendments are constantly being made to enforce the regulations issued by HUD.
The Action Plan brings together the strategies that will be used by the PRDOH to promote the recovery of the Island through the implementation of economic and social assistance programs in five sectors: Planning, Housing, Economy, Infrastructure and Multi-sector. Through the Action Plan, the Government of Puerto Rico will direct the implementation of the CDBG-DR Funds in order to mainly support recovery, reconstruction, economic revitalization and housing development initiatives.
