​West Virginia Community Advancement and Development-CDBG Disaster Recovery​
The Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program was established to help states recover from Presidentially declared disasters, particularly in low-income areas. Congress may appropriate additional funding for CDBG titled “Disaster Recovery” grants to rebuild the affected areas and provide necessary funding to start the recovery process.  HUD does not provide CDBG-DR funding directly to individuals or organizations. If you are interested in participating in this program, you need to contact your local municipal or county officials to find out how the program operates in your area.  Program activities will support recovery efforts in the 12 Presidentially declared disaster-impacted counties, with most of the funds going to the HUD-determined most impacted and distressed counties: Kanawha, Greenbrier, Nicholas, and Clay. The grant requires that 80% funds benefit low- and moderate-income persons.​
