The State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has posted proposed changes to the 2018 CDBG-DR Action Plan Amendment (APA 2).
As a result of the 2018 wildfires (DR-4407 and DR-4382), the State of California received funds in two allocations: Public Law 115-254 Unmet Needs allocation of $491,816,000 and Public Law 116-20 Unmet Needs allocation of $525,583,000. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) manages CDBG-DR funds, in accordance with the goals and objectives set forth in the State’s initial HUD-approved Action Plan for 2018 disasters (18DR-Action Plan).
The 18DR-APA 2 is a substantial amendment; it proposes to add a new program, remove an existing program from the initial HUD-approved Action Plan and proposes to change program budgets in excess of the $10 million-dollar threshold for substantial action plan amendments. APA 2 also clarifies existing program design for 2018 CDBG-DR funds. HCD will discuss the proposed changes to the CDBG-DR programs, and the proposed funding timeline in the following public meeting webinars:
