What is the HUD National Disaster Resilience Competition?
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDR) made $1 billion available to communities that have been struck by natural disasters in recent years. The NDRC was a year-long competition structured in two phases: (1) the Phase 1 “Framing Phase” and (2) the Phase 2 “Implementation Phase.” The competition was structured to guide applicants in the framing phase through broad consideration of their disaster recovery needs, vulnerabilities, stakeholder interests, resilience, and other community development investment alternatives. Funding for the competition is from the Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) appropriation provided by the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2013 (PL 113-2), which made emergency funds available for Hurricane Sandy and other Presidentially declared major disasters occurring in 2011-2013.
