Disaster Recovery Library: Planning Activities

Grantees may include planning activities such as data gathering, studies, and analyses in their CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT grants to address inequities and help communities become more resilient. Plans that grantees may fund include comprehensive plans, capital improvements plans, and neighborhood-level plans. Planning activities do not count towards the requirement that 70% of grant funds must be used to benefit persons with low- or moderate-income; however, there are caps on how much a grantee may spend on planning activities.
