In the wake of Hurricanes Maria and Irma, local governments and community members pulled together to sustain one another, showing significant resilience in the face of disaster. Recovery efforts that build on this resilience—across all sectors—aim to make communities and municipalities stronger.
Puerto Rico Recovery Sectors
Given the scope and scale of recovery planning—as well as the tight deadline for the Governor’s plan—HSOAC organized into sector teams that aligned with FEMA’s organizational response structure. Sector team were responsible for collecting and analyzing damage and needs information and developing and costing recovery actions in their respective areas of expertise. The teams’ data collection and analytic work is presented in sector-based volumes grouped under five overarching themes.
Please note that the sector-based approach is no longer being used for FEMA-4339-DR operations.
