State Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Texas General Land Office (the Land Office) is the lead state agency for managing the State's Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Highly experienced in CDBG disaster recovery, the Land Office coordinated the cleanup of the Texas coast after Hurricanes Dolly and Ike, and is the administrator for long-term recovery efforts for these hurricanes as well as for the 2011 wildfires. The ag​ency's management of CDBG-DR grants gives local communities a single contact, cuts red tape, and reduces administrative costs.​

The State CDBG-DR Program outlines the management and oversight responsibilities for the Land Office.  The Land Office has planning, design, and administrative responsibilities from when the disaster event occurs and is allocated CDBG-DR funds from HUD, to the oversight of the implementation of the housing and non-housing programs, and to the completion of the programs.
