Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program
This video proivdes an overview of the Section 3 Final Rule which was published on September 29, 2020, and a companion "Benchmark Notice."
This video uses illustrations to describe how HUD helps communities recover after a disaster.
HUD provides flexible grants to help cities, counties, and states to recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas, subject to the 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.
