HAVANA (AP) — The Cuban government has announced it will offer subsidies and loans to help islanders rebuild the more than 200,000 homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
A government notice carried in state media says that beginning next week Cubans affected by Sandy can buy building materials at half-price.
Residents of the eastern provinces of Guantanamo, Holguin and Santiago who lack sufficient income can apply for further subsidies up to the entire cost of the materials.
Sandy hit the island Oct. 25 as a category 2 hurricane, killing 11 people and causing major damage to crops.
The government's announcement was published Thursday by the Communist Party daily Granma and other newspapers.
