This toolkit is for grantees who are receiving a CDBG-DR allocation from HUD. The CDBG-DR Toolkit provides the information you need to set up and run an effective, compliant CDBG-DR Program. It incorporates guidance on program rules, lessons learned from previous CDBG-DR grantees, and sample tools. (If you want to know more about CDBG-DR and how it differs from CDBG, see the CDBG-DR Program page.)
Program Launch walks through the key things you need to know when you receive a CDBG-DR allocation. It provides critical information on program rules and offers tips and tools for establishing the systems, procedures, and capacity you need to implement compliant and effective CDBG-DR-funded programs.
Program Implementation describes important design considerations and provides implementation tools for common CDBG-DR activities including Homebuyer, Homeowner Rehabilitation, Rental Rehabilitation, Buyouts, Small Business Loans, and more.
This guidance was developed by ICF and HUD based on engagements with CDBG-DR grantees. Because no two grantees are identical and every disaster presents new challenges, the tools should be adapted to meet your local circumstances and recovery needs.
This toolkit contains a selection of resources to give you a head start on your program design and implementation. To view a comprehensive collection of disaster recovery tools, templates, and training materials on the HUD Exchange, explore the Disaster Recovery Tools and Template Library.
