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.

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program

The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program, jointly administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), allocates federal funds for infrastructure projects that reduce congestion and improve air quality. CMAQ funding may be used for transportation projects that reduce emissions in areas that are not in compliance with federal air quality standards or areas that formerly were not in compliance, but are now meeting those standards.

NOAA Climate Prediction Center Merged Analysis of Precipitation

This monthly data set, produced by NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, consists of two files containing monthly averaged precipitation rate values. Values are obtained from 5 kinds of satellite estimates (GPI, OPI, SSM/I scattering, SSM/I emission and MSU). The enhanced file also includes blended NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Precipitation values. The other includes only the satellite estimates. Pentad data is also available.

Western Water Assessment's Intermountain West Climate Summary

The Western Water Assessment's (WWA) Intermountain West Climate Summary (IWCS) provided the latest climate information for Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming in a simple compact document aimed at water managers, planners and policy makers with water-related interests. These summaries were released approximately eight times annually starting in 2005, before the IWCS was discontinued in 2012.

Northern Hemisphere EASE-Grid Weekly Snow Cover and Sea Ice Extent

This dataset, produced by NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory, combines snow cover and sea ice extent at weekly intervals for October 1978 through August 1995, and snow cover only for January 1971 through October 1978. (Sea ice data was not available prior to October 23, 1978. ) This dataset also includes monthly climatologies describing average extent, probability of occurrence, and variance. The data are provided in a 25 km grid, in an azimuthal, equal area projection (the NSIDC NL EASE-Grid).

NOAA Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC)

The Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC), maintained by NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory, provides two datasets on precipitation. First is the monitoring product for the period 1986 to present, based on quality-controlled data from 7,000 stations. The second is the Full Data Product for the period 1951 to 2004, based on quality-controlled data from a larger number of stations (up to 43,000) with irregular coverage in time. This product is optimized for best spatial coverage and use for water budget studies.
