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 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. The state accepted public comments on the draft Action Plan until 5 p.m. Nov. 29, 2019. All comments are addressed in the final Action Plan the state submitted to HUD on Dec. 23.

We encourage you to review the Federal Register Notice, Action Plan and related documents.
