Note: Materials have been posted on the CDBG-DR Consolidated Notice: URA, 104(d), and CDBG Related Requirements Webinar page.

On February 3, 2022, HUD published the 2020 Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Notice at 87 FR 6364. This Notice combines “allocation-specific” requirements in the Allocation Announcement Notice (AAN) for 2020 CDBG-DR grants, and “consolidated requirements” in the CDBG-DR Consolidated Notice (Appendix B of the Notice). A notice making the Consolidated Notice applicable for 2021 CDBG-DR grantees will be published in the coming weeks.

HUD’s Disaster Recovery and Special Issues Division (DRSI) and Relocation and Real Estate Division (RRED) sponsored a webinar on May 5, 2022 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM EDT which focused on important changes to the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Act (URA), section 104(d), and CDBG anti-displacement requirements in the CDBG-DR Consolidated Notice, including:

  • Action Plan requirement for minimizing displacement
  • New section 104(d) waivers and alternative requirements:
    • Residential Anti-displacement and Relocation Assistance Plan (RARAP)
    • One-for-one replacement
  • Other waivers and alternative requirements

There was also an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

Attendees were encouraged to watch CDBG Disaster Recovery: Working with URA, Section 104(d), and Related CDBG Program Requirements video prior to viewing the webinar to help better understand these requirements. The video is available in English and Spanish.

  • Improve understanding of URA and 104(d) waivers/alternative requirements
