Design

​​​​​​​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.​​

State Action Plan
The Land Office develops the State’s Action Plan that the outlines that states disaster recovery designs in response to the specific disaster. The Action Plan is developed in accordance to the requirements of the funding notices published in the federal register, the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, and 24 CFR Part 570 that govern the use of CDBG-DR funds.

Local Method of Distribution
​​When the State Action Plan allocates funding to the local or regional level, local or regional method of distributions are developed for the disaster impacted regions. Local Mods are developed by the county, and regional MODs are developed by the local councils of governments (COGs). The county or COGs coordinated public participation with interested parties including units of local governments, housing organizations, other community groups, faith-based organizations and the general public. The local and regional MODs are developed in accordance with the State Action Plan, and with additional guidance from the Land Office.​ Read More...
