All CDBG activities, including those used for disaster response and recovery, must meet a national objective. While the primary objective of the program is to benefit low- and moderate-income persons, a grantee may be able to undertake activities under the slum/blight or urgent need national objectives to address disaster response and recovery needs. CDBG funds may also be used under the urgent need national objective to alleviate existing conditions which pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community. In the absence of substantial evidence to the contrary, under §570.208(c) and §570.483(d), the grantee must document that the existing conditions are of recent origin or which recently became urgent, that the grantee is unable to finance the activity on its own, and that other sources of funding are not available. A condition will generally be of recent origin if it developed or became critical within 18 months preceding the certification by the grantee.
