State of Texas Plan for Disaster Recovery Hurricane Harvey
The State of Texas Plan for Disaster Recovery: Hurricane Harvey has been posted for public comment. The plan addresses the utilization of CDBG-DR (Community Block Development Grants) funds (this round is $5.024 billion).
The Action Plan identifies the proposed activities for long-term recovery and restoration of housing, infrastructure, planning, and economic development in areas affected by the disaster. As the state receives additional funding, reallocates funds, or changes activities, amendments to the Action Plan are submitted for HUD approval.
