CDBG-DR Housing Recovery: Challenges, Best Practices, Lessons Learned, and Recommendations


Date Published: June 2019


This guide presents challenges identified by Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grantees in planning and implementing their housing recovery programs. The Urban Institute explored these challenges recently in a project, Improving the Speed of Housing Recovery Program Launch after Severe Disaster, funded by HUD. As part of the project, the Urban Institute interviewed a purposive sample of CDBG-DR grantees, technical assistance providers, and HUD staff to identify key areas of focus and concern.
