HUD Seeks Feedback on Disaster Recovery Fund Usage

Secretary Fudge speaks about the update of the distribution process to increase equity and speed of recovery. 

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced it would seek input from communities for feedback on ways the department utilizes disaster relief funding. This process is designed to find areas to “simplify, modernize, and more equitably distribute critical disaster recovery funds.”

Secretary Marcia Fudge said, “Having visited the damage of Hurricanes Ian and Ida, I have seen firsthand how weather-related disasters harm communities unequally. Here at HUD, we know that investing in equity and resilience presents us an opportunity to meet our climate goals and build more stable, diverse, and inclusive communities with quality affordable homes for all. These RFIs are the next step in our process to ensure recovery resources can be delivered more efficiently and equitably in the future.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Secretary Fudge as she heads efforts to distribute disaster recovery aid more equitably.
  • For HUD officials as they field input from communities and leaders regarding the distribution of aid.
  • For the president and his administration as they implement programs to enhance equity.
