The Disaster Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2022 (Public Law 117-43, authorized by Congress on September 30, 2021) makes available $5 Billion in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds for qualifying major disasters that occurred throughout the nation during 2020 and 2021. Of this amount, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allocated over $2 Billion in CDBG-DR funds from that Appropriations Act to assist in long-term recovery from disasters occurring in 2020. As required by the Appropriations Act, the allocated amount allows for fifteen percent (15%) of the funds to be expended on disaster mitigation activities that are intended to reduce risks from future disasters in the most impacted and distressed (MID) areas.
In HUD’s Notice that was published in the Federal Register on February 3, 2022 (Volume 87, No. 23, pages 6364-6392), HUD notified the state of Alabama that HUD has allocated $311,732,000 for the disaster-qualifying areas in Alabama that were impacted by Hurricanes Sally and Zeta in 2020. ADECA will use this webpage as an official site relating to the Hurricanes Sally and Zeta 2022 CDBG-DR Grant Program. ADECA will post on this site the State’s CDBG-DR Program information on required notices and other communications for the general public.
