CDBG-DR Action Plan

(Incorporating Amendments 1 - 20)

The Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program provides communities with resources to address a wide range of community development needs. The programs outlined in the City’s Action Plan describe how New York City will use its CDBG-DR allocations to support recovery from Hurricane Sandy and to build resiliency to the challenges of climate change.

The CDBG-DR Action Plan includes programs to build and support housing, businesses, coastal resiliency, infrastructure and other City services. In total, the City's CDBG-DR allocation amounts to $4,213,876,000.

In addition, the City is the recipient of an $176 million award from The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s National Disaster Resiliency (NDR) Competition.  You can read more about the City’s NDR award by visiting our National Disaster Resiliency page.

Proposed Amendments to the CDBG-DR Action Plan will be available on this site for public review and comment. In addition, the City will hold at least one public hearing during the public comment period to incorporate public input into any proposed changes.
