In addition to the Washington office which serves as the Government of Puerto Rico's primary liaison in the nation’s capital, PRFAA also has a Northeastern Regional Office, based in New York City. This office covers the Northeastern Corridor: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. It provides services to over two million Puerto Ricans. Established in 1930, this office is the oldest office of the Government of Puerto Rico in the mainland United States. Over the last 70 years, the Government of Puerto Rico's regional office structure has evolved from providing guidance to Puerto Rican migrants, to promoting cultural awareness and helping the Puerto Rican community get involved in the political process. Today, the emphasis of the regional office is in three main areas: economic development through the promotion of business ventures between the Island and U.S. mainland communities; education, empowerment and leadership development through partnerships with community organizations.
