CDBG Disaster Recovery - Overview

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced it approved Colorado’s Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Substantial Amendment to the Action Plan which outlines how Colorado will distribute $199.3 million in grant dollars received from HUD for flood and fire recovery programs. This allocation supplements an initial $62.8 million in grant dollars received from HUD for Colorado flood recovery programs. The second allocation supplements existing grant programs and has allowed for the expansion of programs in response to public input regarding unmet needs.

Funding awarded will go toward needs not addressed through other sources of public and private assistance such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Small Business Administration. With acceptance of this disaster action plan, the long-term and sustainable disaster recovery can continue.  

This grants support recovery efforts in 18 Presidentially declared flood-impacted counties, with a majority of the funds going to the most impacted counties: Boulder, Larimer and Weld. Programs will focus on housing, public infrastructure, long-term planning and economic development and, as stipulated by the grant, 50 percent of the funds will be distributed to low- and moderate-income households.

Information about applications and program guidelines can be found online as they become available at http://dola.colorado.gov/cdbg-dr/. The State will work with all applicants to release the money as soon as possible.
