What is CDBG-DR?

CDBG-DR is a program through HUD that provides flexible grants to help cities, counties, and states recover from disasters, especially in low-income areas.

In response to disasters, Congress may devote additional funding for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program as disaster recovery grants to rebuild the affected areas and provide money to start the recovery process.

Through CDBG disaster recovery (CDBG-DR) assistance, HUD helps communities and neighborhoods that otherwise might not recover due to limited resources.
