The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allocated an additional $178.5 million to help hard-hit areas in several states that have yet to see a full recovery from severe flooding that occurred in 2015 and 2016. 
 
The grants are provided through HUD’s Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program. State and local governments in West Virginia, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida will target these grants in “the most impacted” areas.
 
“Clearly, there are hard-hit communities in these states that need more help to recover from the devastating floods they experienced over the past two years,” said HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson. “Today, we make another investment in the future of these communities and to help our neighbors in need.”
