Recognizing unmet infrastructure recovery needs, related to DR-4382 from July to September 2018 and DR-4407 in November 2018, HCD allocated $317,428,488 of the CDBG-DR funding to the Disaster Recovery Infrastructure Program (DR-Infrastructure). DR-Infrastructure projects are funded to assist with meeting the unmet infrastructure needs of local communities.
For the 2018 DR-Infrastructure Program, there are two rounds of NOIs that align with HCD’s unmet needs Priority Levels. The Priority Levels are as follows:
• Priority 1: Projects addressing an unmet need that meet the LMI national objective• Priority 2: Projects addressing an unmet need that do not meet the LMI national objective
Round 2 accepts both Priority 1 and Priority 2 projects. The LMI national objective does not need to be verified at the NOI stage but the expectation is that the Eligible Applicant can provide service area or area benefit data to support the project Priority Level.
Following the release of each NOI round, Eligible Applicants must complete and submit the NOI fields in the Grants Network Program Portal detailing eligible DR-Infrastructure Program projects within four (4) weeks for Round One and eight (8) weeks for Round Two. If HCD has questions or feedback regarding potential project unmet needs, Eligible Applicants are allowed to provide clarifications. HCD determines program allocations following a final review and evaluation of all submitted NOIs.
Only eligible applicants may submit NOIs and will be provided with all necessary links, thus keyword searches will not be applicable.
This program provides funding for FEMA Public Assistance (PA) match projects, FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) match projects, other non-FEMA match projects, and stand-alone projects identified by local communities impacted by DR-4382 or DR-4407. HUD requires that 70% of the total grant-wide funds are spent on activities that meet the low- and moderate-income (LMI) national objective and 80% of grant funds are expended in the HUD-identified most impacted and distressed (MID) areas. The MID areas for the 2018 DR-Infrastructure Program include the entire counties of Butte, Shasta, Los Angeles and Lake.
