Processing and disbursing disaster recovery funding is complex. To avoid unnecessary delays and speed the delivery of aid to subrecipients, it’s important to have the appropriate resources and processes in place well before a disaster hits.
Since Hurricanes Maria and Irma struck Puerto Rico in 2017, the Puerto Rico Central Office of Recovery, Reconstruction, and Resiliency (COR3) has disbursed $7.1 billion—the largest amount disbursed in FEMA history. COR3 was also recognized by FEMA and the Government of Puerto Rico for providing compliant VAYGo (Verify As You Go) audited files.
Watch this webinar to learn:
