Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR)
Thomas Fire CDBG-DR Multifamily Housing Program (MHP)
On August 14, 2018, HUD allocated $124 million in Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to support the State of California’s unmet recovery needs related to the FEMA Major Disaster Declarations DR-4344 in October 2017 and DR-4353 in December 2017 (Thomas Fire). In response, the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has allocated $4,601,064 under the CDBG-DR MHP program to the City of Ventura to support the development of new, affordable rental housing to replace housing lost in the fire.
Applications will be evaluated for compliance with the NOFA, and funding recommendations will be made accordingly. It is anticipated the Ventura City Council will consider the funding recommendations and approve awards at a City Council meeting in June 2021.
