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.
Both the Action Plan and the Action Plan Amendment can be viewed below:1
1. GOSR is committed to making information and resources available to all New Yorkers. As part of this objective, and in accordance with the agency's federal mandate, GOSR provides foreign language translations of all vital documents, including the Action Plan. Because the Action Plan is updated after each Action Plan Amendment, translations of the Action Plan must also be updated on a recurring basis. If you are not immediately able to locate the translation that you require, please note that it is likely in the process of being updated and will be posted as quickly as possible.↩
