Register Today: CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT Grantee-Led Sessions - March 30 - April 1, 2021

Update: Materials are posted for each webinar on the CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT Grantee-Led Sessions page.

The Disaster Recovery and Special Issues Division (DRSI) hosted a series of grantee-led virtual training sessions for Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) and Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) grantees. DRSI identified a diverse group of grantees from across the country who provided brief presentations on their experiences as well as insights across a variety of hot topic issues. A large portion of each session was set aside for question and answer segments between grantees.

These nine grantee-led sessions were the first component of a comprehensive 2021 CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT Virtual Training Series being hosted by DRSI.

Training Objectives


  • Learned from experienced program administrators from across the country about best practices and effective solutions to challenges
  • Gained an understanding of useful approaches and strategies which can inform implementation of their own CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT programs

Who Should Attend?

These grantee-led sessions were intended for all CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT grantees. As space permitted, partners such as subrecipients and developers also attended.
