Mitigation Funding Draft Action Plan

Public Comment Period Closed

The public comment period for North Carolina's draft Action Plan for $168 million in HUD Community Development Block Grant–Mitigation funding closed Dec. 23. Under federal guidelines, the funds must be used to implement community projects that strengthen local infrastructure and reduce future losses in areas impacted by hurricanes Matthew and Florence. This funding is separate from the HUD CDBG-DR funding that was provided to the state for assistance to individual households.

 Links to the draft Action Plan in Spanish and English are provided below along with copies of the Citizen Participation Plan. ReBuild NC will submit the draft Action Plan to HUD on or before Dec. 30, 2019 for a review period of up to 60 days. Once the HUD review is complete, the final Action Plan will be made available to for public review.

ReBuild NC thanks the many individuals and organizations that submitted public comments. Citizen engagement and participation is critical to creating an Action Plan that helps make a safer, more resilient North Carolina possible.
