CDBG-DR Grants

CDBG-DR stands for Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery. It is a HUD (Housing and Urban Development) program that is supposed to fill in some of the flood recovery unmet needs left by flood insurance, FEMA, and the Small Business Administration (SBA) programs. Colorado has received $62.8 million, is set to receive $199 million, and an additional $58.2 million was announced in July 2014.







Because it is HUD money, the funds must meet the general requirements of benefitting mostly low-to-middle income populations with the emphasis on housing, infrastructure, resiliency, and economic development. Common themes are low-income housing and job-creation. In order to respond to situations unique to the Colorado 2013 floods and recent wildfires, some waivers of the rules have been requested.

The Watershed Pilot Program is something entirely new to the CDBG-DR program, representing a departure from the housing and job creation. It provides for the hiring of a Watershed Coordinator and assistant for the watershed coalitions involved in master planning. A certain number of river restoration implementation projects will be funded, and there will be funds for additional planning from the Planning and Infrastructure portion of the CDBG-DR program.
