The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is holding a public meeting to provide an overview of the Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program for residents of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties who were impacted by Wildfires, Flooding, Mudflows and Debris flows in 2017-2018, as a result of FEMA disasters DR-4344 and DR-4353. A factsheet about the funding source may be found below.
HCD is the grantee of CDBG-DR funds allocated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and works with local governments and organizations to fund programs that provide long-term recovery assistance for housing, infrastructure, and economic revitalization. At this meeting, HCD will discuss proposed recovery programs, program eligibility, and the timeline for funding. A flyer with the meeting details is attached.
The meeting will take place on October 11, 2018 at the Hall of Administration’s Lower Plaza Assembly Room at the Ventura County Government Center, 800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura, CA 93009 from 6pm-8pm.
