HUD allocates additional $58 million to help Texas

Funding to support housing recovery

U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson allocated an additional $57.8 million to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey last week. The grant announced last Friday is provided through HUD’s Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program. Combined with CDBGDR grants already allocated to the State of Texas from disasters that occurred in 2015 and 2016, HUD’s support of long-term disaster recovery in the Lone Star State now totals more than $371 million.

“Clearly, the long-term needs in Texas far exceed this allocation so I anticipate this down payment will be targeted to address damaged housing to help Texans move forward with their own recovery,” said Secretary Carson.
