CDBG-DR Action Plan

The City's original Action Plan (previously referred to as Partial Action Plan A) was approved by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on May 7, 2013. The plan detailed how the City intends to spend the initial allocation of $1,772,820,000 in CDBG-DR funds from HUD for eligible Hurricane Sandy disaster recovery and rebuilding activities. Amendment 5B, approved by HUD on July 24, 2014, incorporated the City’s second allocation of $1,447,000,000.

Amendment 8A was approved by HUD on February 13, 2015. Amendment 8A establishes a temporary Optional Relocation Program for homeowners and allocates $3 million to a Build it Back workforce development initiative.

A third allocation of $994,056,000 to the City was announced on October 16, 2014. The proposed Amendment 8B details the City’s use of that allocation. When Amendment 8B is approved by HUD, the City’s total approved CDBG-DR allocation will be $4,213,876,000.The updates to the Action Plan that are part of the proposed Amendment 8B cannot be implemented by the City until HUD approval. These documents are subject to change until such time. Once the Action Plan is approved, it will be posted on this page as the approved CDBG-DR Action Plan.
