With generous support from The UPS Foundation, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy hosted an on-location webinar to address recovery needs on the island. Reporting from Puerto Rico, CDP staff Regine A. Webster and Anna R. Hurt provided assessments on current funding and recovery efforts. Miriam Gelo, FEMA Voluntary Agency Liaison, provided updates on government response, including a situation overview, critical needs, and ways governments and private funders can intersect on recovery work.
