Mission and Objectives

La Liga aims to strengthen the capacity of local governments and communities on the island in the face of social, physical, fiscal, and governance challenges. 

La Liga's objectives are: 

  • Maximize State government resources by promoting the decentralization of responsibilities and resources to local governments. 

  • Promote public policies at the State and Federal levels that guarantee the well-being and development of local governments. 

  • Foster civic engagement in all of Puerto Rico's communities by promoting new models of participatory governance, transparency, and accountability.


  • Empower Cities to properly access and maximize Federal and State funds. 


  • Share best practices and experiences between governments (local and international), and build capacity and skills among them to face social, fiscal, infrastructure, and governance challenges.
