DBRA Policy Guide
The Puerto Rico Department of Housing (PRDOH) is the administering agency of a multifaceted effort to rebuild and restore the communities of Puerto Rico after the devastation sustained during Hurricanes Irma and María on September 6 and September 20, 2017. The recovery activities are funded by Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds received by PRDOH from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As recipients of HUD financial assistance, PRDOH and its contractors and subcontractors working within the PRDOH CDBG-DR Program are subject to the requirements of the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 (DBA), 40 U.S.C. § 3141 et seq., which guarantees fair wages, benefits, and overtime to employees while working on government-funded construction, alternation, or repair projects in excess of $2,000.
