Tetra Tech provides efficient strategies and innovative technologies to assist our U.S. state and local clients in navigating the complex guidelines and regulations of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT) funding.

In the weeks and months after disaster strikes, communities depend on officials to forge a path through recovery. Tetra Tech offers efficient strategies and innovative technologies to help our clients through the HUD CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT funding process to ensure speed and compliance in recovery.

Our full-service team has the technical expertise and capacity to help communities bolster their recovery efforts and build long-term resilience. Tetra Tech’s grant management experts provide four critical components to ensure our clients a successful and sustainable recovery process: grant administration (database management), tracking and monitoring, compliance, and technical assistance. Whether that means leveraging additional resources or targeting those areas most impacted by natural disaster, our experts work with local teams to maximize CDBG-DR funding and optimize application. 

Tetra Tech has extensive experience with CDBG-DR programs at both the state and local levels across the United States, including Puerto Rico. Our team has responded to disasters such as Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Maria, Tropical Storm Lee, Hurricane Matthew, and various flood events in Colorado, Texas, and South Carolina. Our long history of supporting large disaster recovery efforts has allowed our staff to hone processes and develop Tetra Tech’s proprietary RecoveryTrac™ software.
