About Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program

The federal government uses a program called Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) to provide communities with resources that address a wide range of needs. These funds are flexible and help cities, counties and states recover from disasters particularly in low income communities. Some of the federal aid for areas affected by Hurricane Sandy will come through this program in the form of Community Development Block Grant- Disaster Recovery funding. There will be several rounds of CDBG-DR funding. Our initial award is for $1.77 billion. The chart below summarizes how we plan to use this money.

You can read detailed information about the programs listed below in Action Plan A.
