Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery Program (CDBG-DR)

Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) are federal funds provided to states and local municipalities to assist in recovering from hurricane and other natural disasters. Funds may be used in rebuilding damaged homes and structures, improving drainage and other infrastructure, economic recovery, and buy out and acquisition programs to mitigate for future flooding. On August 26, 2019, the City of League City submitted multiple applications for CDBG-DR funding to the General Land Office of Texas for infrastructure and drainage improvement and for acquisition and buy out programs related to Hurricane Harvey.
