The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is the grantee of Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program funds allocated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a result of the 2017 wildfires in California.
On November 12, HCD released a draft Action Plan for proposed usage of $124 million in Unmet Recovery Needs CDBG-DR funds.
The CDBG-DR funds are designated to help unmet housing needs for households meeting certain Federal income criteria. HCD is proposing two main programs for housing: an Owner-Occupied Single Family program to be operated as a single statewide program and a multi-family program to be operated at the local jurisdiction level.
A copy of the draft Action Plan can be found on the HCD webpage in both English and Spanish at http://www.hcd.ca.gov/community-development/disaster-recovery-programs/cdbg-dr.shtml
Public comment on the draft Action Plan opened November 13, 2018, and closes at midnight December 12, 2018. Comments in writing will be received via email at DisasterRecovery@hcd.ca.gov and via postal mail at:
