CDBG-DR Action Plan

The Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program provides communities with resources to address a wide range of community development needs; the programs outlined in this Action Plan describe how New York City will use its CDBG-DR allocations to support recovery from Hurricane Sandy and to build resiliency to the challenges of climate change. This Action Plan includes programs to build and support housing, businesses, coastal resiliency, infrastructure and other City services. On May 7, 2013, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved the City's initial Action Plan, which detailed the City's plans for its first allocation of $1,772,820,000 of CDBG-DR funding. On November 18, 2013, HUD announced a second round of funding and the City of New York was awarded an additional $1,447,000,000. The City was awarded a third allocation totaling $994,056,000 on October 16, 2014, bringing the City's total CDBG-DR funding to $4,213,876,000.
