CDBG Disaster Recovery

About the Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program

The federal government uses a program called Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) to provide communities with resources that address a wide range of needs. These funds are flexible and help cities, counties and states recover from disasters particularly in low income communities. Some of the federal aid for areas affected by the 2011 Flood will come through this program in the form of Community Development Block Grant- Disaster Recovery funding. There will be several rounds of CDBG-DR funding. Our initial award is for $67.6 million with a future promise of $35 million as a second allocation. Please review the documents and information on this site to see how we plan to use this money.
