  • The Puerto Rican Status Archives Project:
    A History of Federal Status Legislation for Puerto Rico, 1898 to the present

     


    Between the 56th (1898) and 117th (2021) Congresses, federal lawmakers debated more than 140 bills providing for the resolution of Puerto Rico’s territorial status. The Puerto Rico Status Archives Project (PRSAP) is an initiative to create a public repository of documents addressing the history of the political status legislation for Puerto Rico. This webinar provides an overview of some of the preliminary findings of our initial effort to analyze all the federal status legislation debated in Congress. This webinar is meant to introduce the public to the PRSAP and its potential uses.

It is through our appreciation of cultural expressions that we can learn more about and communicate our history, culture, and traditions.

Cultural expressions include parades, festivals, fairs, music, dance, art, crafts, instruments, and narratives, or many other artistic or cultural expressions that form part of the identity and heritage of our communities throughout the United States.

    National Borinqueneers Day and Military Service in Puerto Rican History

    eJournal Presentation

    The Puerto Rican Experience in the U.S. Military: A Century of Unheralded Service
    And Celebration of National Borinqueneers’ Day



    The impact and meaning of the Puerto Ricans’ service in the armed forces of the United States go beyond mere numbers. Their service has served to disperse Puerto Ricans across the United States and the world creating new communities beyond what we understood as traditional diaspora centers. Military service, in particular during the WWII-Korean War period, also served to build modern Puerto Rico, and for Puerto Rican colonias turning into full-fledged communities to stake a claim of belonging. In this Webinar historian and author, Dr. Harry Franqui-Rivera, explores the impact of military service for Puerto Rico and the Puerto Ricans.

    The Puerto Rican Experience in the U.S. Military: A Century of Unheralded Service

    Puerto Ricans started fighting as auxiliary forces to the U.S. military in 1898. Since then, hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans have served in every small and major conflict in which the United States has participated. This publication intends to show the scope of the Puerto Rican experience in the U.S. military without lionizing nor demeaning it. This project hopes to inspire the public and scholars to look into this under-studied phenomenon.

    Celebrating the first “National Borinqueneers’ Day”

    In January 2021, Congress overrode a presidential veto to pass the National Defense Authorization Act. The legislation also designated April 13 as National Borinqueneers Day.

    On April 13, 2016, Congress awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to the 65th Infantry Regiment in recognition of the Borinqueneers’ numerous contributions to American history and outstanding military service from World War I to the Korean War. Learn more:

    Borinqueneers Day and the Korean War in Puerto Rican History and Memory
    In this essay, Harry Franqui explores the meaning of the Borinqueneers’ sacrifices for Puerto Rico and the Diaspora. “Let us remember that they represented the hopes of a people willing to sacrifice their youth for a better future, to pay a tribute of blood in search for acceptance, respectability, equality, a path towards decolonization, and a democracy that has proven elusive to them.” https://centropr.hunter.cuny.edu/centrovoices/chronicles/borinqueneers-day-and-korean-war-puerto-rican-history-and-memory

    Actualización de Oportunidades de Financiamiento para Mitigación de Desastres CDBG-MIT (HUD) Y HMGP (FEMA)

    20201110_174413_0003.png

    Acompáñenos el martes 17 de noviembre a discutir actualizaciones en el financiamiento para tanto el programa de Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (HUD/CDBG-MIT) y el Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (FEMA/HMGP) para el Huracán María y los eventos sísmicos del 2020.

    Martes, 17 de noviembre de 2020 a las 3:00 p.m. AST, hora en Puerto Rico
    Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 2:00 PM EST


    Subvención en Bloque para el Desarrollo Comunitario de Mitigación (CDBG-MIT)


    Puerto Rico tendrá acceso a más de $8,000 millones para financiar proyectos de mitigación de riesgos bajo el programa CDBG-MIT del Departamento de Vivienda de los EEUU (HUD). El propósito de la mitigación de riesgos es prevenir la pérdida de vida y propiedad en desastres naturales futuros. Esta asignación de $8,400 millones es la tercera y última remesa de CDBG correspondiente al Huracán María. Con esta remesa, el apoyo de HUD para la recuperación del desastre de María alcanzará un total de $19,900 millones. Por tanto, esta asignación de CDBG-MIT es una de las opciones de financiamiento restantes más grandes para la recuperación del Huracán María.

    En comparación con los programas de mitigación de desastres de FEMA, el programa de CDBG-MIT provee más fondos (+166%) y cubre un ámbito mayor de opciones de financiamiento. Además de reparar y mejorar la resiliencia de la infraestructura, CDBG-MIT también apoya la planificación, la vivienda y el desarrollo económico, renglones que a menudo son inelegibles bajo los fondos de mitigación de FEMA. Esto hace de CDBG-MIT una opción para una mayor variedad de proyectos e iniciativas.

    Los fondos CDBG-MIT serán administrados localmente por el Departamento de la Vivienda una vez HUD apruebe el Plan de Acción requerido. Vivienda recientemente publicó el primer borrador del Plan de Acción para comentarios e insumo público (ver más abajo). El borrador resume las estrategias a largo plazo para aumentar la resiliencia a desastres, y provee pormenorizadas evaluaciones de los riesgos que se enfrentan. Una vez aprobado por HUD, se anticipa que los fondos estarán disponibles para el año 2021.

    El borrador del plan de acción (en español) y sus apéndices documentales están disponible para comentario público hasta el 20 de noviembre en cdbg-mit-plan-de-accion. En este mismo enlace se provee el formulario para someter comentarios e insumos.

    Actualización sobre el programa de FEMA para subvenciones de mitigación de riesgos (HMGP/404) para el Huracán María y los sismos del 2020.

    El programa de subvenciones de mitigación de riesgos (HMGP/Sección 404) es el programa post-desastre de mitigación de riesgos más importante de FEMA. Como resultado del Huracán María, Puerto Rico recibió la asignación más grande de HMGP/404 en la historia de FEMA: $3,000 millones, pareados con $1,000 millones de CDBG-MIT, para un total de $4,000 millones.

    Según las reglas de HMGP/404, el gobierno estatal de Puerto Rico es el único recipiente de estos fondos. Para configurar los proyectos, el gobierno solicitó cartas de intención de posibles proyectos (LOIs) a sub-recipientes elegibles (agencias estatales, municipios y organizaciones sin fines de lucro). El gobierno revisó estas LOIs e invito a cientos de entidades elegibles a someter propuestas formales, a ser revisadas para radicación definitiva a FEMA. Aunque le fecha para su radicación era octubre de este año, FEMA recientemente otorgó al gobierno una extensión de un año hasta octubre del 2021. Esto permitirá más tiempo para la revisión y perfeccionamiento de estas propuestas, y hace posible que se añadan nuevos proyectos adicionales de mitigación

    Además, recientemente el Gobierno de Puerto Rico anunció la asignación de $75 millones de FEMA para proyectos de mitigación HMGP/404 como resultado de los eventos sísmicos del 2020. Aunque aún no se han establecido fechas límites y procedimientos, el Gobierno ya ha identificado prioridades de financiamiento de índole geográfica y de tipos de proyectos. Estas opciones de financiamiento se proyectan para el año 2021.

    RebuildPR: herramientas de GIS para el desarrollo de propuestas para proyectos de mitigación

    Nosotros demostraremos además cómo utilizar la aplicación web RebuildPR para construir mapas con datos relevantes para proyectos de mitigación. Obtenga más información sobre datos post-desastre de FEMA, USGS y otras fuentes disponibles en línea: Inundaciones (zonas inundables de 100 en relación a 500 años); terremotos; deslizamiento de tierra; daños a viviendas e infraestructura resultantes de los huracanes María y Irma; y daños a escuelas. La demostración de la aplicación incluirá cómo estimar el número de personas y unidades de vivienda afectadas por tormentas a nivel de municipio o de comunidad.

    Este programa ofrece capacitación a profesionales involucrados en la recuperación económica de Puerto Rico tras los desastres que ha sufrido.
