Community Development Block Grants Disaster Recovery


The DR-4317 application cycle closed on April 16, 2024.


These grants assist local communities and other entities with long-term recovery, restoration of infrastructure and economic revitalization related to specific Presidentially-declared disasters.

On 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.

This category provides funding for communities impacted by the DR-4317 disasters, primarily in southern Missouri, with a primary objective of addressing unmet housing needs. Applications are periodically accepted through a competitive process.

Programs included:

Affordable Multi-Family Rental Recovery

Provides funding for new construction of affordable multi-family rental housing units in areas impacted by the flooding event.  Development teams may leverage a variety of funding sources, including LIHTC funding.

Down Payment Assistance

This program provides funding for low-to-moderate income persons wishing to buy into affordable housing stock, outside of a floodplain or disaster risk reduction area, within the subrecipient’s jurisdiction.

Infrastructure in Support of Affordable Housing

This program provides funding for construction of publicly-owned infrastructure, including but not limited to sidewalks, roads, water, sewer, and stormwater, as well as related activities, such as site clearance/demolition and engineering/design of publicly-owned infrastructure, which are necessary to support the development of affordable owner-occupied housing.

Voluntary Buyouts

This program allows subrecipients to acquire residential real property with tiebacks to the  2017 flooding event,  as well as clearance and demolition to remove all associated structures from the floodplain. Properties are required to be maintained as open space and returned to a natural floodplain function.

Do I Qualify?

Eligible applicants are units of general local government (UGLGs), cities and counties only, within the 55 Presidentially Declared Disaster counties under DR-4317.  Those entities may also make applications “on-behalf of” eligible entities whereby the sub-applicant is provided the CDBG- DR funds for their use to carry out the agreed upon, eligible activities. Additional eligibility requirements may apply by specific program.


LMI National Objective

Any community attempting to qualify a project under the LMI Area Benefit (LMA) National Objective by Census must use the FY 2023 ACS 5-Year 2011-2015 Low- and Moderate-Income Summary Data, available on HUD’s website.  Data may be accessed on the right hand column of the website by selecting “Local Government Summaries” for municipal- and county-level data, or one of the other dataset links for other defined Census geographies.

**Please note that, at this time, HUD has not updated its LMI Mapping Tool with FY23 data so this should not be used to determine your project’s eligibility.


FY23 Income Limits

HUD has published the new income limits for any local income surveys.
