109.04.10-II. Purpose of the CDBG - Disaster Funds
The primary purpose of the CDBG - Disaster funds is to assist in the recovery in areas covered by a declaration of major disaster under title IV of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq.) as a result of natural disasters that occurred in 2008. The $10,134,098 set aside for affordable rental housing is intended to support repair, rehabilitation, and reconstruction (including demolition, site clearance, and remediation) of the affordable rental housing stock (including public and other HUD-assisted housing) in the impacted areas where there is a demonstrated need.
All CDBG Disaster Funds must be used in the 71 Presidentially-Declared disaster counties of Arkansas. The four (4) excluded counties are Columbia, Ouachita, Polk, and Sevier.
Each CDBG Disaster Program application MUST submit documentation from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) and/or the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (“ADEM”) documenting damage to residential buildings resulting from one of the specified disasters.
CDBG-Disaster funds may not be used for activities reimbursable by or for which funds are made available by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Army Corps of Engineers, insurance proceeds, or other funding received as a result of the Presidentially-declared disaster specified in the CDBG Disaster fund application. CDBG-Disaster funds may not be used as the required match, share, or contribution for another federal program.
