HUD is pleased to release the CDBG-DR Toolkits which contain a collection of more than 30 resources that cover the two phase process that CDBG-DR grantees will undertake in the implementation of their long-term recovery efforts.
Phase 1: Disaster Impact and Unmet Needs Assessment
The Disaster Impact and Unmet Needs Assessment Kit guides CDBG-DR grantees through a process for identifying and prioritizing critical unmet needs for long-term community recovery.
Phase 2: Program Design and Implementation
The Program Design and Implementation Toolkits support CDBG-DR grantees with the subsequent phases of work required for long-term disaster recovery efforts. These toolkits detail program design considerations and implementation strategies for the following disaster recovery programs:
Homeowner Rehabilitation Program
Small Business Loan and Grant Program
Small Rental Rehabilitation Program
Additionally, each program has a range of Implementation Tools that may be adapted for a grantee’s own policies and procedures to help kick start their own disaster recovery programs. HUD encourages grantees to review the program overview, considerations, and strategies prior to using the tools.
