Capabilities Statement – Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico 2 v4

Overview

Tidal Basin Caribe has been actively providing housing and infrastructure recovery support in Puerto Rico for years and across the nation for decades. At Tidal Basin Caribe, our core strengths include hands-on expertise with federal funding authorities, a history of client advocacy and retention, and dedication to enabling a full and efficient financial recovery. These strengths make us a valuable addition to any recovery team. Additionally, we employ local experts in all aspects related to grant and program management.

Your Trusted Partner

Tidal Basin Caribe has supported clients with FEMA Public Assistance (PA), Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs (HMGP), HUD Community Development Block Grant–Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR), U.S. Department of Treasury, Joint Field Office (JFO) stand-up, debris monitoring and management, damage assessments and overall program management.

We have provided professional grant management, disaster recovery, and auditing/appeals advisory support consulting services to more than 150 clients, totaling over $40 billion in recovery funding and reimbursements at the federal, state, and local levels and for numerous private and non-profit organizations.

We Know Puerto Rico

Tidal Basin Caribe, LLC was created as an additional entity to Tidal Basin Government Consulting to provide specialized recovery services in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. We recently had a team of 28 supporting Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) with project formulation, cost estimation, and grant management support as it continues to seek reimbursement from FEMA for damages to their facilities across Puerto Rico.


Following Hurricane Maria, we were “boots on the ground” in Puerto Rico within 48 hours. Hiring, training and managing 1,100 people, Tidal Basin successfully managed the largest Shelter and Temporary Essential Power (STEP) program in United States history, providing services to more than 100,000 Puerto Rican residents with zero Inspector General (IG) audit findings.

How We Can Help

Tidal Basin Caribe’s technical expertise includes all services associated with emergency and disaster management. Our team has been assisting Commonwealth agencies and Municipios, including – such as PREPA, PRDOH and ENLACE – since 2018.

We advise clients how to take advantage of program eligibility to maximize their financial recovery following disasters. Tidal Basin Caribe’s technical expertise includes not only grants management and financial compliance, but also comprehensive project formulation and environmental compliance.
