Long-term Recovery Plans

Habitat has set an initial goal to help more than 2,000 families in each of Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

We’ve also set a goal of raising $100 million to support the rebuilding plan. So far we’ve secured $15 million in commitments. We are seeking support from corporations, government grants and individual donors to fulfill its commitment.
