The V.I. government and V.I. Housing Authority received a $69 million obligation from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to fund the demolition and replacement of residential buildings at the Tutu Hi-Rise housing community, according to Government House.
The funding will facilitate the demolition and replacement of the first five of 17 residential buildings at Tutu Hi-Rise damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017.
In a release Thursday, V.I. Housing Authority Executive Director Robert Graham said the funding would allow the Authority the move forward with its plans to demolish and begin construction to replace buildings 10, 11, 12, 14 and 22 at the complex.
