Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, the Executive Director of the
Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration (PRFAA), Jennifer M. Storipan, Esq.
met with the Mayor of the municipality of Cataño, Féliz Delgado Montalvo ‘El
Cano’ to discuss the opening of the municipality’s Recovery and Sustainability
Office. Cataño is located on the northern coast of the metropolitan area in
Puerto Rico, with a population of 23,244, a per capita income of $7,235, and
49% of residents living below the poverty line.
The opening of the Cataño’s Recovery and Sustainability Office is an effort by
the mayor to lead and centralize recovery activities and initiatives for the
municipality, and to continue streamlining the recovery of Cataño after
Hurricanes Irma and María devastated the island. The office seeks to design
the legal and administrative structure, develop Cataño’s recovery strategy
plan, as well as implement procedures for effective and efficient management
of a recovery in the event of an emergency. The office will promote, execute,
and manage infrastructure projects related to the recovery and sustainability
of the municipality.
“PRFAA will continue to work with COR3 and the 78 Mayors on the island to
achieve a speedy recovery for Puerto Rico” said Jennifer M. Storipan, Esq.
