HUD Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery

Congress often funds state and local recovery efforts by appropriating funds to the Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG-DR) authorized by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 and administered by HUD. CDBG funds are typically allocated by formula grants to support economic development activities of state and local governments.  Through supplemental appropriations, Congress allocates funds to HUD to distribute block grants to help communities support both short-term disaster relief as well as long-term recovery.

Enabling Adaptation: Priorities for Supporting the Rural Poor in a Changing Climate

May 2009

This issue brief from the World Resources Institute is "formulated in response to an increasingly urgent need for articulating and agreeing upon a vision of effective adaptation - in part to inform the architecture for financing climate adaptation. " The paper argues that the poor, and in particular the resource-dependent rural poor, must be a central concern in any effective adaptation funding effort, and that one of the major pillars of an effective adaptation strategy is support for an enabling environment that allows them to build their resilience through natural resource management.
