Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grantees and subrecipients procuring goods and services with their grant funds must ensure that they are following all program procurement statutory and regulatory requirements. The urgency in post-disaster recoveries often leads state and local officials to work to quickly restore infrastructure, public services, and help private companies and citizens make repairs. However, grantees and subrecipients that do not follow all CDBG program requirements may be forced to repay Federal funds.
This webinar provides guidance on how to comply with these requirements while also moving as quickly as possible to recover from a disaster. It was recently translated to Spanish; there are no new updates to the content of the webinar.
