NLIHC Provides Spanish Version of its Outline of the CDBG-DR Federal Register Notice

A Spanish version of NLIHC’s “Outline of the CDBG-DR Federal Register Notice” is now available thanks to Francisco Rodriquez from Coalición de Coaliciones de Puerto Rico. The outline is designed to help residents and advocates understand the requirements related to an Action Plan, public participation, and reporting before Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds are provided. NLIHC’s outline is based on the February 9, 2018 Federal Register notice that applies to the $7.4 billion in CDBG-DR funds Congress appropriated on September 8, 2017. Of that amount, HUD awarded $5 billion to Texas, $1.5 billion to Puerto Rico, $616 million to Florida, and $243 million to the Virgin Islands. The Spanish version is at: and the English version is at:
