CDBG - Disaster Recovery Program (DR)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​On October 4, 2018, the State of Wisconsin requested a presidential declaration of a major disaster pursuant to Section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act.  The request for declaration followed the severe storms, flooding, landslides, straight-line winds, and tornadoes that occurred August 17 - September 14, 2018.  Counties impacted included Adams, Crawford, Dane, Dodge, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Juneau, La Crosse, Marquette, Monroe, Ozaukee, Richland, Sauk, and Vernon counties for both Public Assistance and Individual Assistance; Iron County for Public Assistance only; and Columbia, Jefferson and Washington counties for Individual Assistance only.​

On January 27, 2020, HUD published notice in the Federal Register that the State of Wisconsin was to receive Federal CDBG-Disaster Recovery assistance.  The funding amount ann​ounced in the January 27, 2020 Federal Register was later corrected to $15,355,000 in federal assistance. 


To date, DEHCR has made CDBG-DR awards to the entities listed in the link below under the CDBG-Disaster Recovery heading.  As further awards are made, DEHCR will update the link.
