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

The U.S.  Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)  provides flexible grants to help cities, counties, and States recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas, subject to availability of supplemental appropriations.   In response to Presidentially declared disasters, Congress may appropriate additional funding for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program as Disaster Recovery grants to rebuild the affected areas and provide crucial seed money to start the recovery process.  Illinois is currently administering three CDBG Disaster Recovery Programs:

  • CDBG Disaster Recovery 1771 (Midwest) Program
  • CDBG Disaster Recovery 1800 (IKE) Program
  • CDBG Disaster Recovery 4116, 4157, 1960, 1991 (Sandy) Program
