The State of Connecticut, Department of Housing is seeking public comment on the 4th Substantial Amendment to the Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Action Plan. This Substantial Amendment is intended to address the following: a change in the funding allocation for CDBG – DR; the identification of a pilot project or activity under Rebuild by Design as well as the Citizen Outreach Plan– Resilient Bridgeport (RBD); and describe the planned activities under the National Disaster Recovery Program (NDR).

Introduction

In 2014, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) selected the City of Bridgeport and a multidisciplinary design team led by New Orleans-based Waggonner and Ball to prepare an integrated resilience framework for Bridgeport for the federal Rebuild by Design Competition. The resulting HUD grant award of $10,000,000, received by the State of Connecticut in 2015, will be used to develop a plan for reducing flood risk and improving resilience for the South End and Black R ock Harbor areas, and to build a pilot project in the South End that serves as a catalyst for full implementation of broader flood protection and resilience strategies.
