Disaster Recovery Library: Community Outreach

When developing their Action Plans, grantees must conduct community outreach and follow citizen participation requirements to seek out community input. This input is important for designing disaster recovery programs that will address community needs and be feasible to implement.

CDBG-MIT grantees have additional public participation requirements. In addition to general community outreach and citizen participation requirements, CDBG-MIT grantees must reach out to additional stakeholders, work with a citizen advisory council, and are required to hold a certain number of public hearings depending on the amount of their CDBG-MIT award.
