CDBG-DR Program’s Tourism and Business Marketing Program (for Puerto Rico)

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 Department of Housing of Puerto Rico (PRDOH) 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. This will be implemented under the Tourism and Business Marketing Program (TBMP).

The TBMP will undertake promotional activities outside the island in order to attract visitors and businesses, to bring external capital that can contribute to Puerto Rico’s economy, encourage external investments, promote economic development, and create new jobs, allowing the island to re-emerge as a highly competitive destination in the Caribbean. Related to this is the Citizen Complaints Policy which may be found here: https://cdbg-dr.pr.gov/en/download/citizen-complaints-policy/.
