By on August 1, 2018

To date, the FEMA Public Assistance program has committed nearly $2.7 billion in funding to the Government of Puerto Rico and its municipalities.

The agency defines emergency protective measures as “actions taken to eliminate or lessen immediate threats either to lives, public health or safety, or significant additional damage to public or private property in a cost-effective manner.”

The more than $80 million grant to the Puerto Rico Department of Education is to help “continue providing essential educational services to students in Puerto Rico.”

The more than $10.4 million grant awarded to the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority is for “protective measures related to the Guajataca Dam,” while nearly $2.5 million for Morovis is to “remove debris as a result of Hurricane Maria.”
