Reconnecting with EDA’s Iglesias

Mr. and Mrs. Mariano Iglesias stopped in this week. Mariano previously managed the Water Division of the Commonwealth Utilities Corporation. Having completed studies at the University of Iowa, he is now with the Economic Development Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce in Seattle. There he is involved with EDA programs in the Pacific. The disaster appropriation the House passed in January gives EDA $600 million to use for disaster relief, long-term recovery, and restoration of infrastructure damaged by typhoons Mangkhut and Yutu and other natural disasters of 2018.
