July 15, 2013: Proposed Amendment to CDBG-DR Action Plan

Monday, July 15, 2013

The Bloomberg Administration announced an amendment to the approved Action Plan for the first round of CDBG funds on the NYC Recovery website. A seven-day public comment period, which was required, is now closed. Proposed CDBG-DR Action Plan Amendment 1 reallocates $10 million from the multi-family building rehabilitation allocation to the rental assistance allocation, clarifies the definition of buildings in the multi-family category and identifies programs to be funded with the $294 million allocated to resiliency investment activities that were not defined in the initial Action Plan.

All Action Plans can be found at NYC’s Recovery Community Development Block Grant website at:http://www.nyc.gov/cdbg.  [See also GJNY's At-a-Glance: Federal Disaster Relief After Sandyas well as the Chinese translation (opens in pdf)]
