HUD is seeking applications to help communities recover from prior disasters and improve their ability to withstand and recover more quickly from future disasters, hazards, and shocks. HUD will also provide technical assistance to every eligible state and local government to help applicants consider future risks and vulnerabilities in planning and decision-making, and assist them in applying for funding. The competition is structured in two phases: a framing phase, in which applicants consider their disaster recovery needs, vulnerabilities, stakeholder interests, resilience, community development objectives, and investment alternatives, and an implementation phase, in which a subset of applicants will refine their approaches developed in the first phase. HUD will award funding at the conclusion of Phase 2.
