The National Preparedness Division from the Puerto Rico Caribbean Area Office for FEMA Region 2 in partnership with USDA-Rural Development and PR Mercy invites you to a virtual workshop to discuss the resources available for water and energy alternatives. 

The workshop aims to provide you with information on existing programs and funding available to increase your agency's or organization's capacity and resilience by having alternates water and energy sources.  It will also discuss examples of this type of projects already implemented in Puerto Rico by both the USDA-Rural Development and Mercy Corps who has currently helped set up 17 Community Resilience Centers on the island with alternate water and energy resources, augmenting the capacity of these centers to support the disaster response and recovery of the communities they serve.     

The eligibility criteria and application process for the USDA- Rural Development program will also be discussed.

Who should attend? Communities, non-governmental organizations, emergency managers, municipal government, philanthropic entities and the general public are welcome.

Thank you
