Authorized activities under the CDBG-DR MHP program include new construction, clearance, demolition, removal, reconstruction, and rehabilitation of buildings and improvements to create Low- and Moderate-Income housing units. Eligible applicants may submit applications for funding of projects that demonstrate compliance with program requirements and objectives.
