The objectives of the Action Plan’s Housing Programs address the unmet housing needs in the Territory by: 
  • Supporting residents, especially low- and moderate-income residents, directly affected by the storms by rehabilitating or replacing housing units, including mitigation enhancements;  
  • Leveraging other funding sources and supporting community efforts to both address immediate gaps in rehabilitation of damaged homes with flexible funding and maximizing CDBG-DR dollars; 
  • Aiding in the rehabilitation and new development of housing for the most vulnerable, including temporary, emergency housing, and permanent supportive housing; 
  • Identifying opportunities to develop new housing stock to meet the urgent demand for affordable rental and owner-occupied housing; and 
  • Helping affected individuals by improving the resilience of their housing to reduce risk and strengthen neighborhoods for any future disasters while restoring their buildings and residences.
