June 01, 2020 Print ShareThis

Update: The DOE Resources for Resilience of Critical Electric Infrastructure webinar has been added to the CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT Webinar Series schedule. Join us on June 25 to learn about how CDBG-MIT funds can take an "all hazards" (natural and man-made) approach to improving the resilience and reliability of the energy sector.


The Office of Block Grant Assistance (OBGA) Disaster Recovery and Special Issues Division (DRSI) is hosting a webinar series for Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) and Community Development Block Grant-Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) grantees to provide an introduction to each program.

  • The CDBG-DR webinars will educate CDBG-DR grantees on how to successfully and compliantly implement their programs. A basic overview of the requirements and key topics listed in the chart below will be covered as well.

    This webinar series is intended for new CDBG-DR grantees: FY 2018 and 2019 grantees that received their first allocation of CDBG-DR grant funding or those who received additional funding for the first time since FY 2017. As space permits, partners such as subrecipients and developers, as well as more seasoned CDBG-DR grantee staff, may attend.

  • The CDBG-MIT webinars will provide CDBG-MIT grantees with information on best practices for transformative mitigation projects. A detailed review of the requirements and key topics listed in the chart below will be covered as well.

    This webinar series is intended for CDBG-MIT grantees. As space permits, partners such as subrecipients and developers may attend.

Grantees may attend sessions from either the CDBG-DR or CDBG-MIT webinar series as needed.

Note: Participation in each session is limited to 280 participants. A recording of each webinar will be posted on the HUD Exchange so grantees can view the webinar at a later date.
