HUD Allocates Record $28B in Grants to Disaster Recovery Areas

The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant–Disaster Recovery Program has awarded nearly $28 billion

The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant–Disaster Recovery Program has awarded nearly $28 billion to support long-term disaster recovery in hard-hit areas in nine states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This represents the largest single amount of disaster recovery assistance ever allocated in HUD’s history.
 
HUD reported that more than $12 billion has been targeted for major disasters that occurred in 2017, while nearly $16 billion to support ‘mitigation’ activities in areas that experienced major presidentially-declared disasters since 2015. 
 
“It’s clear that a number of states and local communities are still struggling to recover from a variety of natural disasters that occurred in the past three years,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “These grants will help rebuild communities impacted by past disasters and will also protect them from major disasters in the future.”
