Hurricane Harvey Method of Distribution

CAPCOG is drafting a Method of Distribution (MOD) for the 2017 Hurricane Harvey Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) allocations in the Local Infrastructure Program and the Local Buyout and Acquisition Program. The document will propose how to distribute funds to foster long-term recovery, emphasize a focus on the permanent restoration in infrastructure, and to use local buyout and acquisition of land and property to remove Hurricane Harvey survivors out of harm’s way.

The proposed MOD is for those jurisdictions in CAPCOG counties affected by Hurricane Harvey, 2017 FEMA Disaster 4332 — Bastrop, Caldwell, Lee, and Fayette counties. CAPCOG anticipates the region receiving $4,305,474 of infrastructure and $12,929,474 of acquisition program funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CAPCOG has already created a draft version of the MOD based on public input.
