Puerto Rico temporary roof application deadline extended

Published Dec. 26, 2017

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – FEMA has extended the application deadline to apply for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Blue Roof program to Jan. 10, 2018. 

The extension gives residents who were unable to meet the Jan. 3, deadline an opportunity to fill out the required Right of Entry form. Residents must complete ROE forms so assessments can be made of their home, which gets the process started to install the plastic sheeting. 

The Corps is continuing to collect new requests for temporary roof repairs via the call center at: 888-ROOF-BLU.  Once the collection period ends, we will no longer accept new requests.   

The end of the Blue Roof sign up period also applies to those residents who had an assessment completed that resulted in a disqualified status due to damages beyond the limits in the eligibility criteria. If that homeowner makes repairs to become eligible they must put in a new request for temporary roof repairs before the Jan. 10 deadline.  This can be done by contacting the call center. 

Residents should NOT fill out an additional ROE if one was already submitted and approved. 

For more information call 888-ROOF-BLU or 888-766-3258.
