Gov. Kenneth E. Mapp’s Hurricane Recovery and Resilience Task Force will be hosting several community meetings to inform and engage the public on its efforts.

Space is still available for those interested in participating in the first of the meetings, the Housing Information Session, scheduled for 5-7 p.m., Thursday, April 12, at WICO’s Conference Room, 9020 Havensight Mall, Long Bay, St. Thomas.

This session will offer an overview of the VIHFA Emergency Home Repairs Program, which provides free temporary repairs to eligible owner-occupied homes that were damaged during hurricanes Irma or Maria. The information session will also provide a progress report of the Task Force Housing Sector, which includes plans to rebuild homes to current building code standards and reconstruct vacant units to help accommodate increased demand for affordable housing.

The Task Force’s next community meetings are scheduled for:

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
