About the New York State Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program
On November 25, 2013, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a supplemental allocation of $2,097,000,000 of Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to support the State of New York’s continued recovery efforts from Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. HUD requires that grantees create an Action Plan Amendment that documents the proposed use of funds, and publish it for public input. The Action Plan Amendment includes investments in housing, economic development, infrastructure, and NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program activities. Prior to releasing the supplemental allocation, HUD approved the State’s initial Action Plan for $1,713,960,000 on April 25, 2013.
