HUD has published a notice for the purpose of assisting in long-term recovery from 2017 disasters.

This spring, HUD allocated nearly $28 billion in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery funds that were approved by Congress.

The breakdown is as follows:

  • $10.03 billion for the purpose of assisting in addressing unmet needs from disasters that occurred in 2017;
  • $2 billion for improved electrical power systems in areas impacted by Hurricane Maria; and
  • $15.9 billion for mitigation activities.

The notice posted by HUD applies only to the $10.03 billion allocated for long-term recovery from disasters that occurred in 2017. Of this, Florida will receive $157.7 million, Puerto Rico will receive $8.2 billion, Texas will receive $652.2 million, and the U.S. Virgin Islands will receive $779.2 million.

Combined with the previous Feb. 9 allocation for unmet needs, Florida will receive a total of $773.6 million, Puerto Rico will receive a total of $9.7 billion, Texas will receive a total of $5.7 billion and the U.S. Virgin Islands will receive just over $1 billion.

Other states and territories receiving funds under today’s notice include California ($124.2 million), Georgia ($37.9 million) and Missouri ($58.5 million).

A future notice will specify the requirements and process for the electrical power systems funding and the mitigation funds.

The notice was published in the Federal Register and will be applicable on Aug. 20. The notice provides details regarding the grant award process and eligible disaster recovery activities.
