Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery

CDBG-DR Action PlanOn June 2, 2018, President Donald Trump approved Missouri’s request for a major disaster declaration (DR-4317) in response to the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds, and flooding during the period of April 28 to May 11, 2017. On April 10, 2018, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated nearly $28 billion in Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery (CDBG–DR) funds for unmet needs due to the national disasters of 2017.  Of that 28 billion, Missouri will receive an allocation of $58,535,000 in disaster recovery funds to help alleviate the unmet housing, infrastructure, and economic revitalization needs triggered by the floods of 2017. 

The state identifies in the Action Plan the proposed use of funds, criteria for eligibility, and how funds will address long-term recovery. Priority for the funding is to first address unmet housing needs.  Future amendments will address the infrastructure and economic revitalization unmet needs if the housing needs in the impacted areas of the state have been met.


Comments regarding the CDBG-DR Action Plan will be accepted through December 14, 2018 via web form submission or comments may also be mailed to the Missouri Department of Economic Development, 301 W. High Street, P.O. Box 118, Jefferson City, MO 65102.
