The Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program works to rebuild areas affected by disaster through grants for unmet housing needs, infrastructure, and business needs.  Congress appropriates these funds in response to presidentially declared disasters. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocates the appropriated funding to states and entitlement communities based on unmet needs.

DCA is currently administering three separate allocations: 2017 Unmet Needs, 2017 Mitigation, and 2018 Unmet Needs (Hurricane Michael). Two tornadoes touched down in Southwest Georgia (DR 4294 and DR 4297) and Hurricane Irma (DR 4338) affected the coast in 2017. In 2018, Hurricane Michael (DR 4400) ravaged Southwest Georgia again. Additional information pertaining to the individual allocations can be found in the tabs located at the bottom of the page.
