The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced that the State of Montana has made it to Phase 2 of the CDBG-NDR Competition. If the State is successful, these grant funds will provide a historic opportunity to help Montana communities address unmet recovery needs and increase long-term resiliency across Montana.
For Phase 2, the State will work with its partners to identify resilient projects in areas that have met thresholds set by HUD to be eligible for grant funding. In the coming days, the Department of Commerce will be in contact with all communities and partners that participated in the Phase 1 application process to discuss next steps. Additionally, the Department will be scheduling meetings, one-on-one outreach and technical workshops in the coming months, to further engage Montana communities in the CDBG-NDR process and overall resiliency efforts.
