Community Development Block Grant Mitigation Program
This video proivdes an overview of the Section 3 Final Rule which was published on September 29, 2020, and a companion "Benchmark Notice."
The Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) Program is a unique and significant opportunity for eligible grantees to use this assistance in areas impacted by recent disasters to carry out strategic and high-impact activities to mitigate disaster risks and reduce future losses. Congress appropriated $12 billion in CDBG funds in February 2018 specifically for mitigation activities for qualifying disasters in 2015, 2016, and 2017, and HUD was able to allocate an additional $3.9 billion, bringing the amount available for mitigation to nearly $16 billion.
The program defines mitigation as activities that:
- Increase resilience to disasters and reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of loss of life, injury, damage to and loss of property, and suffering and hardship by lessening the impact of future disasters.
Grantees must submit a CDBG-MIT Action Plan prior to expending CDBG-MIT funds.
