According to the approved Disaster Recovery Action Plan of the Puerto Rico Department of Housing, the Whole Community Resilience Planning Program will result in comprehensive community recovery plans, the benefits of which will allow communities to develop policies, planning, and management capacity that best meet their needs.

The Whole Community Resilience Planning Program (WCRP) has two phases which will nurture civic engagement and allow communities to create a resilience plan and increase local capacity in their decision-making processes for future investment opportunities. In the process communities will collaboratively and effectively determine their unique needs, set long-term goals and short-term objectives, identify priorities and request funding for the development of a long-term resilience plan. The program priority will be high-risk communities, which are defined as communities situated in the floodway or floodplain, landslide risk areas: and/or area of concentrated damage.
