Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery Initiative Program: $44,366,578*
In 2007, Broward County received an initial funding allocation of $22 million from DCA and US HUD for the 2005 Disaster Recovery Initiative (Round 1). In 2008, Broward County was advised that DCA and US HUD mad available a second round of CDBG Disaster related funds through a supplemental appropriation addressing Hurricane Wilma totaling approximately $21 million to the Broward County region. US HUD subsequently approved an appropriation for the 2008 hurricanes. Broward County was awarded an additional $765K (Round 3). Eligible activities for disaster recovery for the Round 2 and 3 funding were limited to the following:

  • Single-family/Multi-family Housing Repair, Rehabilitation, or Replacement and Hardening
  • Infrastructure repair/improvement (damaged as a result of the 2005 and 2008 storms)

Broward County was awarded the funds for the County and its cities. 28 of the 31 municipalities participated and were allocated funding for specific DRI programs and strategies, which the cities identified. Many of the cities implemented their own programs through an agreement with the County, with the County administering overall program requirements including reporting to Florida Department of Economic Opportunities (DEO) and monitoring the city contracts.

The DRI funding benefits low- to moderate-income families with incomes at or below 80 percent of the Area Median Income. Below is a table that indicates the area median income threshold size for Broward County in 2012.
