Alternate Title: Co-Managing Disaster Recovery and CARES Act Programs

From the Introduction: "HUD [Department of Housing and Urban Development] provides flexible grants to help cities, counties, and states recover from Presidentially declared disasters. These programs are designed to primarily assist low-income households and areas. Funding for the programs is subject to the availability of supplemental appropriations. CDBG [Community Development Block Grant]-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds are used to recover from Presidentially declared disaster for which they were appropriated. Examples of past disasters include hurricanes, floods, wildfires, tornadoes, and mudslides. Grantees conduct an unmet needs assessment to identify which aspects of the recovery have not been addressed through other sources. Grantees then prioritize and fund activities that address those unmet needs within their community. CDBG-Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funds must be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus. Both programs require substantial amendments to the grantee's CDBG Annual Action Plan."
