Once the state receives an allocation, it must design programs to best serve impacted communities and distribute funds across projects. The state submits a disaster recovery Action Plan to HUD for review and approval. The Action Plan details how the state intends to use the CDBG-DR funds and how the funds will address at least one of HUD's national objectives. Stakeholder involvement may establish buy-in and build consensus around the recovery needs and program vision. Regular stakeholder meetings, town hall symposiums, site visits, and consistent program updates facilitate community involvement and foster quality program development.
