(click an image to enlarge)

The Special Communities Perpetual Trust (the "Trust" or "SCPT") works hand in hand with Puerto Rico’s Department of Public Works and Transportation, Housing Department, Infrastructure Financing Authority, and Office of the General Coordinator for Socio-Economic Financing and Self-Management in order to promote and implement infrastructure works in the commonly named Special Communities.

CALLE DEL AGUA COMMUNITY IN ADJUNTAS
Mortgage Loan Closing

As a means to provide permanent housing to residents of special communities that lack an assigned project, the SCPT acquires units in the private market and delivers them to these residents through a deed. The units are appraised and inspected by certified engineers before acquisition. Residents agree to pay for the real property through a $15,000.00 mortgage and the remainder of its value is paid off by residing in the unit and executing a mortgage that we call «silent mortgage» and that establishes certain restrictive conditions.

Teresa Torres is closing a chapter of her life that went on for over 13 years while she awaited her home. The SCPT thanks the Housing Department and its Secretary Alberto Lastra Power for revisiting this case; as in other cases, justice is finally being served to this family.

Margarita González from the Mameyes Special Comunity in Utuado had been awaiting this moment for 12 years. Her house was demolished in 2003; it was expected then that her new house would be built within one year. Now, she will reside in the Municipality of Florida, where she selected the house that was acquired.

The Special Communities Perpetual Trust Chairman Alberto Lastra Power, Executive Director Ángel L. Rosado Rivera and Board member Javier Ramos Hernández delivered the key to Ms. González.

After years of waiting, Ruth F. Luciano Pérez and Ángel L. Ferrer Rivera were given the keys to their residence in the Captetillo Community. A community-based management, perseverance and the support of professional organizations were key in achieving this project.

The SCPT would like to thank the personnel of the Office of Project Management and Development of the Housing Department who revisited the case and put all their effort to do justice to this family.

ALDEA VÁZQUEZ COMMUNITY, COROZAL PR
Construction of bridge over the El Negro River

The purpose of building this bridge is to correct a safety problem caused by rain events in which rain accumulation left several families without access to and from their homes and even put in danger the safety of the families living in the area adjacent to the bridge.

This Project was financed from different funding sources.

The Special Communities Perpetual Trust’s investment was $650,000.00.

TOCONES COMMUNITY, LOÍZA PR.
Construction of 54 housing units

In 2014, the residents of the Tocones Community in Loíza received what they had been awaiting for over ten years: safe housing. The project consists of 54 housing units. Twenty-two (22) of the families that received a house were expropriated in 2002 from the lands where they used to live, because a private apartment complex would be built in those lands.
