On August 3, 2021, Governor Pedro Pierluisi announced the Caño Martín Peña Program, which makes up to $130 million in immediate CSFRF funds available to make necessary investments to improve access to a reliable potable water system, sanitary sewer system, and stormwater system in the Buena Vista Santurce community.
Restrictions: Disbursement of Program funds will be subject to the strictest standards to ensure compliance with federal regulations and best practices. Therefore, each request for disbursement will be duly documented and subject to control and audit.
These funds will only be available to cover necessary expenditures as stated in Program Guidelines and that have not been covered or reimbursed, or that will not be covered in the future, by other state, federal or private programs that the entities may have. Likewise, the lead agency must sign an agreement as part of the program in which they agree to return the money if it is determined in the future that they did not comply with any of the eligibility requirements.
Subrecipients must spend the money on or before December 31, 2024.
