Action Plan and Amendments
Below are the governing documents for the Boulder County Collaborative disaster recovery. These documents are used to prioritize and guide the communities through the disaster recovery process.
CDBG-DR Action Plan & Unmet Needs Assessment
The purpose of the Action Plan is to identify and assess local unmet flood recovery and resiliency planning needs, to develop strategies and identify resources where possible aimed at addressing those needs. The Action Plan also identifies the manner in which federal CDBG‐DR Funds sub‐allocated to the Collaborative from the State Department of Local Affairs are proposed to be expended through the Action Plan.
HUD requires recipients of CDBG‐DR funds to assess both direct and indirect impacts from disasters and conduct an “unmet needs” assessment for the three major categories of Housing, Infrastructure, and Economic Revitalization. Boulder County hired an independent disaster recovery consulting firm to conduct a comprehensive unmet needs assessment approximately one year after the 2013 flood to assess remaining unmet needs. This document details the methodology, sources of data, analysis of impacts, and sources of assistance that were factored into determining unmet disaster related needs in Boulder County.
