2017 Hurricane Harvey

GLO-CDR is the responsible entity for developing the State Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program (CDBG-DR) Action Plan in accordance with HUD guidelines.

The Action Plan identifies the proposed activities for long-term recovery and restoration of housing, infrastructure, planning, and economic development in areas affected by the disaster. As the state receives additional funding, reallocates funds, or changes activities, amendments to the Action Plan are submitted for HUD approval.

Action Plans consist of the following components:

    1. Disaster impact and unmet needs
    2. Eligible activities and applicants
    3. Method of Distribution (MOD)

On August 14, 2018, HUD issued its guidance for the administration of an additional $652 million award to the state of Texas to help with the long-term recovery following Hurricane Harvey. The additional award brings the total award of Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to the state of Texas to $5.734 billion.

The GLO is currently awaiting HUD rule approval for $4.383 billion in mitigation funding appropriated to Texas by Congress in February of 2018. These funds were allocated to fund mitigation projects to protect communities against future storms through the Community Development Block Grants for Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program.

Understanding the State Action Plan – Each state action plan may have several amendments based on federal changes to allocation amounts and program activities. Once an amendment to an action plan has been approved by HUD, the action plan as amended, becomes the applicable state action plan for reference. Previously versions of the state action plan and amendments are required to be posted per HUD.

The action plans will be listed with the current action plan first. Action plan amendments listed as "Pending" are currently under HUD review for approval.
