The USVI Hurricane Recovery and Resiliency Task Force


USVI Hurricane Recovery and Resilience Task Force

In the wake of the devastating 2017 hurricane season, Governor Kenneth E. Mapp convened the Hurricane Task Force to investigate and advise his administration on the best way to build back the USVI smarter and stronger than ever before. 

The Task Force is made up of local officials, community members, business and environmental experts, and thought leaders from around the United States.

With input from these experts and the community, the Task Force will produce a detailed analysis and implemation plan in the coming months to serve as the foundation for long-term natural disaster security and economic recovery efforts across the USVI.  

We’re bringing together experts from many disciplines to help the U.S. Virgin Islands build back as fast and smart as possible to enhance the long-term resiliency and economic health of our islands, while protecting our communities from future storms.
