Created during the darkest moments of Hurricane María’s aftermath –when the collapse of the island’s infrastructure made everything seem short of impossible –the Puerto Rico Recovery Fund (PRRF) was borne out of a conscious decision to address the colossal challenges posed by Puerto Rico’s critical situation.
The Center for a New Economy and Espacios Abiertos had the human capital, resources and strong networks that allowed to structure and execute one of the largest relief efforts in Puerto Rico. So, without emergency relief experience, but with a deep-rooted conviction that Puerto Ricans had to lead the island’s relief and reconstruction efforts, the PRRF delivered more than 4.1 million pounds of water, food, medicines and critical supplies. Today the PRRF continues to work on the medium and long-term recovery and advocacy goals established since its conception.
The incredible strength of the human spirit and the work of every single person that joined this effort resulted in a significant impact on Puerto Rico’s recovery. Enclosed above, you will find the PRRF’s Impact Report which summarizes our efforts, experiences and achievements.
We thank you for your trust and support during this journey!
