 The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a notice 78 FR 32262 (May 29, 2013) which awarded $29,986,000 of additional CDBG-DR funds to the Commonwealth to be administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development (Department). The notice published at 78 FR 32262 requires the Commonwealth to notify and provide its citizens an opportunity to comment and provide input on the draft Action Plan and/or any substantial amendment to the Action Plan.

These funds are separate and distinct from the annual allocation of CDBG funds.
