May 17, 2018

Abstract

Carlos Martín, Senior Fellow at the Urban Institute, testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, Committee on Financial Services. In his testimony, Martín identified two characteristics of the Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Relief (CDBG-DR) program and its consist challenges: CDBG-DR’s final position in the sequence of federal post-disaster response, and CDBG-DR’s lack of permanent statutory authority. Within his testimony, Martín noted that future disasters are certain and equal certainty in the federal response to these disasters will improve how communities recover, quantitatively and qualitatively.
