GLO works with communities and local leaders to determine long-term projects to help communities recover from disaster and mitigate future damage through preventative planning.
As Texans continue to experience a major disaster declaration nearly every year, the role GLO-CDR plays in recovery will continue to be vital.
2016 Texas Floods and Storms CDBG-DR Allocation
Amendment 1 to the 2016 State of Texas Action Plan has been posted on TexasRebuilds.org and is available for review and public comment. Amendment 1 details additional funding appropriated to the GLO for long-term recovery. A total of $238.8 million has been awarded to the state by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in three separate allocations. The Amendment also announces the guidelines the GLO will follow to allow communities to apply for those funds not specifically allotted by HUD to specific areas.

Eligible communities are encouraged to submit applications for long-term housing and infrastructure recovery projects. GLO-CDR will accept project applications for 120 days following the release date of July 13, 2017, and will work with impacted counties to maximize the number of long-term recovery projects that can be completed given the limited funding.
