Haiti - Reconstruction : All About The Haiti Reconstruction Fund (HRF)
The public does not really know the role of Haiti Reconstruction Fund (HRF) and even fewer the members of the HRF Secretariat team. We invite you to discover the HRF and these women and men in charge of this institution that allocates hundreds of millions of dollars to the Reconstruction of Haiti.

The Haiti Reconstruction Fund (HRF) is a partnership between the international community and the Government of Haiti to help finance post-earthquake reconstruction. The HRF mobilizes, coordinates and allocates contributions from bilateral and other donors to finance high-priority projects, programs and budget support. Proponents partner with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the United Nations (UN) or the World Bank (WB) to ensure that international standards for quality, good governance and financial management are met. All proposals for HRF financing must be endorsed by the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC) as consistent with the Action Plan for the Recovery and Development of Haiti.

The HRF does not manage all of the resources pledged for rebuilding but is the largest source of un-earmarked financing. The HRF does not set reconstruction priorities or directly advise the Government. The Fund does not implement projects but rather works through implementing agencies that are acceptable to one of its three partners. It encourages coordination and the improvement of local capacity while building on each agency/actor’s comparative advantage.

The Haiti Reconstruction Fund (HRF) became effective on May 11, 2010 with an initial contribution by Brazil of US$55 million.
