Tornado Recovery

Due to the widespread devastation from the May 20, 2013 tornado, the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded $52.2 million to help with the recovery of the City of Moore through the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program. The CDBG-DR program is designed to support long-term disaster recovery efforts in areas with the greatest extent of ‘unmet need.’ CDBG-DR grants are intended to address housing, business and infrastructure needs beyond those met by other forms of public and private assistance.

A series of Notices published in the Federal Register regulates the use of the CDBG-DR funds. City Staff has worked with HUD officials and finalized an “Action Plan” that will be the framework through which Recovery Activities will be carried out.

The Action Plan is available to view below.
