Nearly $811 million in federal grants, disaster loans, public assistance grants and flood insurance payments have been provided to Puerto Rico and to households impacted by Hurricane Fiona to help jumpstart their recovery.


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided nearly $607 million in disaster assistance grants to households affected by Hurricane Fiona. The funds are provided to repair damaged homes, replace personal property, and for unmet critical needs and other types of disaster-related assistance.


In addition, FEMA has obligated more than $115 million to government entities and private nonprofit organizations for debris removal and emergency protective measures. To date, 19 municipalities, 21 government agencies and 47 private nonprofit organizations have been awarded disaster assistance grants.


Nearly $22 million was obligated to the Puerto Rico Police Bureau, which deployed 9,250 officers to provide additional law enforcement patrol and surveillance to minimize immediate threats to public health and safety.


“Puerto Rico’s recovery after hurricane Fiona has been swift and FEMA’s work, having already disbursed over $806 million in federal aid in just four months, is a great example of the joint work our government and the federal government do for the benefit of our people,” Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia said. “Hurricane Fiona was a difficult moment for everybody on the island, and our police officers and emergency personnel, as well as many other public officials, left their families for weeks on end to provide security and assistance to our citizens in their time of need.”

The Boricuas of Boriken would like the following information asap::


a List the 19 Municipalities and how much they were each given?

a List of the 21 governmental agencies and how much they were each given?

a List of the 47 private non profits and how much they were each given?

journalists of the media, here is a suggestion that has garnered me billions… when reporting always list the names of the cities, government agencies & private non profits and how much each receive, by not doing so, it shows you are in cahoots with keeping the citizens fooled and confused, remember you have to make up for not wanting to mention “Natural Immunity”.

As the Boricuas sip on…

Reason for requesting said names and numbers, those that are from the actual island are aware that the racists over in the Puerto Rican government and cities of Puerto Rico have a habit of dismissing or supporting anything that has to do with Boricuas from Boriken. They also have a habit of funding Spaniard/European lineage companies with fake connections to the island hence why the monies never reach the intended Boricuas of Boriken. This is why they bought up all the newspapers on the island to print nonsense.
