The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant–Disaster Recovery Program has awarded nearly $28 billion

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded more than $1.5 billion to help the ongoing recovery efforts in Puerto Rico created by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
 
HUD's Deputy Secretary Pamela Hughes Patenaude announced the disaster recovery grants today during a meeting with Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló. The recovery funds were provided through HUD's Community Development Block Grant–Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program and will be allocated to help in reconstruction of damaged housing and local businesses in Puerto Rico.
 
"President Trump and the entire HUD family stand with our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico to help them recover from these devastating hurricanes," said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. "These recovery funds will help repair damaged homes and businesses. As local leaders, along with their citizens, develop their recovery plans, HUD will reduce regulatory barriers and remove any unnecessary roadblocks to speed long-term recovery."
