Diaz-Balart Holds THUD Appropriations Hearing CDBG-DR Emergency Relief Funds


WASHINGTON – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, held a subcommittee hearing on the Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) supplemental request, with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development Neal Rackleff serving as a witness.

“I welcomed this week’s announcement of $616 million in CDBG-DR funds that were released to Florida. Our state remains in recovery mode after Hurricane Irma, and these funds will help continue that process. For some areas, rebuilding will be a long and difficult road, but they are more than ready for the task at hand. I look forward to continue working with HUD to ensure Florida’s needs are met through the end of the recovery process.”

Earlier this week, Diaz-Balart announced that HUD would be releasing $616 million to the state of Florida as part of the CDBG-DR program. He also hosted an informational briefing on the program, educating colleagues on the importance of CDBG-DR in recovery efforts after natural disasters.
