Hurricane Harvey Method of Distribution

CAPCOG drafted 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 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.

MOD Allocation Formulas and Data

To allocate the funds in the Housing Acquisition Assistance Program and the Infrastructure Assistance Program, CAPCOG relied on formulas that multiply relevant variables by a weighting factor. The full formulas and weights for each program are outlined in the MOD Data Explanation document.

> Review the formulas for calculating the allocations.

Several FEMA sources contributed to the determining the allocations. CAPCOG has compiled the sources so they can be reviewed along with the MOD Data Explanation document.
