Just did a little more digging, it looks like the disaster relief bill that Puerto Rico got included 16.3 million which was dedicated to repair the Arecibo Observatory. It said that that money was supposed to bring it back up to its pre-hurricane standards, and hopefully with the new partnership, they can leverage that money into making some substantial improvements to the telescope beyond where it is today.

Info on telescope from the management team:
