The audit objective is to determine whether the City’s CDBG NDR grant projects and management were effective in assisting the City in recovering from past disaster events while improving its ability to withstand future extreme events. On January 21, 2016, HUD announced 13 CDBG-NDR finalists and in January 2017, the City of New Orleans Office of Community Development received $141,260,569 in a CDBG- NDR Grant under Public Law 113-2 for resilience and recovery. The grant was designed to help state and local communities recover from past disasters while improving their ability to withstand future extreme events through strategic community investments.
