Bahamas: DRA set to continue housing initiatives; expects to impact “thousands of families”

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Over $11 million has been spent on the Disaster Reconstruction Authority’s (DRA) Small Home Repair Programme, with 3,735 homeowners having applied and been approved for assistance since the program’s inception last February.

The DRA has announced that it is gearing up to launch another round of housing assistance as it continues to meet the needs of Hurricane Dorian victims through its Small Home Repair Programme (SHRP) and dome housing project.

DRA Managing Director Katherine Smith said that relaunching the two housing projects addresses some of the most pressing needs of the people most impacted by Dorian.

“Nearly a year and a half later, the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian continues to adversely impact countless families in our northern islands,” she said.
