DR-MHP works with local governments (Subrecipients) and developers in areas impacted by disasters, helping to (re)build multifamily housing projects and generate crucial affordable housing units with CDBG-DR funds.
DR-MHP Projects are funded to assist with meeting the unmet rental housing need, including the needs of individuals displaced from rental homes and individuals who became homeless as the result of the disasters. Multifamily Projects include apartment complexes and mixed-use developments. The 2017 and 2018 programs work with Subrecipients to identify, select, and submit potential Projects to HCD for eligibility review, approval, and funding. Subrecipients then work with qualified Developers and Contractors to construct the approved Projects. All DR-MHP funded units are affordable to households earning at or below 80% Area Median Income.
