On September 27, The United States Department of Transportation released $40 million in federal relief funds to Puerto Rico to help repair damage brought on by Hurricane Maria. These monies will be used for road and bridge repair throughout the island. U. S Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao directed the emergency funding. The infrastructure needs repaired before supplies can be delivered to the devastated population. These funds are in addition to the $2.5 million in relief supplies which the DOT sent when the storm made landfall.
