KEY DEVELOPMENTS

· As of September 20, USAID/OFDA grantees had reported completing 5,855 transitional shelters (t-shelters), approximately 45 percent of the 13,500 t-shelters built by international relief agencies and sufficient to house nearly 30,000 individuals.

· USAID/OFDA grantee Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) is meeting with community leaders to finalize selection criteria for yellow house repairs, ensuring community engagement with the beneficiary selection process. PADF also continues to train engineers on methods to repair damaged structures. As of August 29, teams of engineers-from a project funded by USAID/OFDA and the World Bank to assess building structures throughout earthquake-affected areas-had identified approximately 65,000 yellow houses, or houses requiring moderate repairs, of the more than 250,000 assessed buildings.
