Action Plan

On Aug. 23, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released requirements detailing eligible activities and processes for spending $1.2 billion in Community Development Block Grant Mitigation funds allocated to the state.

The Louisiana Office of Community Development is accepting public input on the state’s Action Plan for the funds. The plan details the state's approach for using the funds, including projects, data collection and modeling, and policy measures that advance the Louisiana Watershed Initiative’s long-term resilience objectives.

We encourage you to review the Federal Register Notice, draft Action Plan and Spending Plan to provide your feedback, input, questions or concerns.
