Infrastructure Repair & Resilience
Tranche 1: $30M | Tranche 2: $275M
Hardening public facilities and networks is critical to the Territory’s ability to respond swiftly in the aftermath of an extreme weather event. A high priority for the U.S. Virgin Islands will be funding activities that mitigate damage to utility, transportation, and telecommunications networks, particularly for the facilities and networks that serve the health and safety of the community. As of April 27, 2018, the Territory has identified several resilience and mitigation measures, which include hardening public facilities (e.g., water pump stations, public schools), installing on-site power generation, burying utility lines, reducing the risk of storm water runoff erosion and flood exposure, and extending utility services to isolated populations.
