HUD awarded nearly $1.5 billion to support seven states in their recovery from 2018 disasters, including Hurricane Michael, Hurricane Florence and wildfires in California. These funds are provided through HUD’s Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program and will address seriously damaged housing, businesses and infrastructure in hard-hit areas of these states. The CDBG-DR Program requires grantees to develop thoughtful recovery plans informed by local residents. In addition to these funds, HUD will allocate an additional $205 million later in the year following a comprehensive analysis of the recovery needs in American Samoa and the Northern Marianas.
