Our Background

For years prior to 2017, Tidal Basin Group Government Consulting [CGW1] had a presence on the islands, but after Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the company knew it had to be a permanent fixture to help prepare and recover from natural disasters. In early 2018, Tidal Basin Caribe, LLC, was created to provide specialized recovery services in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, and on March 1, 2018, Tidal Basin Caribe opened its doors. Since then, Tidal Basin Caribe has been the Caribbean’s premier emergency management and recovery partner, actively providing housing, infrastructure, and efficient financial recovery support.

Tidal Basin Caribe’s technical expertise includes emergency and disaster management services, grants management, financial compliance, comprehensive project formulation, and environmental compliance.


The Latest

Seven people die in home fires every day, most often in homes without working smoke alarms. That’s why Tidal Basin Caribe has joined forces with the American Red Cross in Puerto Rico for their Sound the Alarm Home Fire Campaign.


2017 is a year many Puerto Ricans will not soon forget. It was a hectic hurricane season, and within one month, the island was struck by two major hurricanes: one category 5 and one category 4. The strong winds coupled with the island’s mountainous terrain created wind tunnels, increased rainfall, flash flooding, and left widespread destruction in its wake.


Whether you’re looking to improve your preparedness or you’re responding to a disaster, every interaction you have with Tidal Basin Caribe will put your community and the businesses and people within it in a stronger, more resilient position than they were before.

Your knowledge of the complex governmental regulations and equally complex insurance and adjusting issues really helped the county maximize the public assistance that was available after all of these disasters. You delivered what you promised, and we are confident in your ability and the ability of your firm to provide these services fully on a technical and professional level yet be able to translate clearly and concisely the intricate and sometimes subjective FEMA regulations which we could not have done without you.

The State of Alaska…[has] a significant investment in the disaster recovery process for both state and federally declared events…. The collaboration with Tidal Basin in these efforts has been so successful and seamless that in most instances applicants and FEMA staff don’t even realize we have contractors on board unless we tell them. Our interaction with Tidal Basin staff and managers works and feels like true teammates and the result is a faster, more comprehensive delivery of disaster recovery resources to survivors.

Months after the storm passed, the County was still faced with tremendous burdens related to the insurance coverage issues and FEMA and MEMA eligibility issues. Jackson County hired your organization to provide professional services for disaster assistance, remediation, restoration and recovery efforts….Their expertise with governmental regulations, the complex FEMA process and insurance adjustments resulted in our successful claim for over $2 million in additional FEMA Public Assistance funding specifically; in our successful negotiations with our insurance carrier; and in numerous other increases in the values FEMA and MEMA initially designated for County projects. Jackson County will always be mindful of the help we received from you when we needed it most.
