Main objectives of the project
The focus of the Repair, Reconstruction or Relocation Program (R3 Program) is to provide relief to persons affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria who still have unmet needs in their residences. Through this Program, fair housing may be affirmatively furthered in accordance with the Fair Housing Act of 1968, as amended, 42 USC 3601 et seq, a federal provision known as the "Fair Housing Act of 1968". Assistance under this Program will be provided in three (3) major categories: repair, reconstruction and relocation. Under the Reconstruction Program, demolition may be an eligible activity, and under the Relocation Program, acquisition and demolition may also be eligible activities.
The national objective of the R3 Program is to benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) persons whose income is below eighty percent (80%) of the area median family income (AMFI) according to the modified income limits established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the CDBG-DR Program in Puerto Rico. Also included are Low and Moderate Income Housing Incentives (LMHI). These are activities and incentives that benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) families, with the purpose of relocating these families out of the affected floodplain or at-risk area. These activities are also undertaken for the purpose of providing or improving permanent residential structures that, upon completion, will be occupied by low- and moderate-income families.
In addition to achieving the ancillary benefits of community and neighborhood revitalization, promoting resilience and fostering opportunity.
