Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program

HUD provides flexible grants to help cities, counties, and States recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas, subject to availability of supplemental appropriations. In response to Presidentially declared disasters, Congress may appropriate additional funding for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program as Disaster Recovery grants to rebuild the affected areas and provide crucial seed money to start the recovery process. Since CDBG Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) assistance may fund a broad range of recovery activities, HUD can help communities and neighborhoods that otherwise might not recover due to limited resources.

National Disaster Resilience Competition

HUD announced the winners of the $1 billion National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC) on January 21, 2016. Through NDRC, HUD will provide funding to communities that have experienced natural disasters to help them rebuild and increase their resilience to future disasters.
