The CDBG Disaster Recovery “Ike” Program was authorized and funded by the federal Consolidated Security Disaster Assistance and Continuing Appropriations Act of 2009 to help communities address disaster relief and restoration to infrastructure, housing, and economic revitalization in areas affected by flooding, hurricanes and other natural disasters in 2008.
HUD allocated over $169 million to the State of Illinois, Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) to implement the program, requesting a portion of the state’s CDBG funding be used to fund affordable rental housing in designated disaster counties. Forty-one counties were included in the disaster declarations eligible for receipt of this funding, including some CDBG entitlement areas. All CDBG Disaster “Ike” activities must primarily benefit low or moderate (LMI) households in these 41 designated eligible counties.
The act and subsequent HUD rules requested that DCEO and IHDA entered into an intergovernmental agreement, and IHDA will implement “Ike” program housing activities under the Affordable Rental Housing Program (AHP).
Visit the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity’s (DCEO) website to review the State of Illinois’ CDBG “Ike” Action Plan and amendments, and to learn about many other components of the program administered by DCEO.
The Affordable Rental Housing Program (AHP) offers $18.9 million for the following targeted activities in the eligible counties:
- Public Housing Rehabilitation – small capital grants for public housing rehabilitation, energy and accessibility improvements;
- USDA Rural Development Acquisition/Rehabilitation – capital improvement grants for preservation of U.S. Department of Agriculture – Rural Development rental developments in rural communities; and
- Permanent Supportive Housing – creation of newly available housing units for persons with disabilities and households that are homeless or at-risk of homelessness.
One major priority under AHP is to first consider assisting existing properties that either:
- sustained damages due to storms, flooding, hurricanes and other natural disasters that occurred in 2008, or
- could positively benefit from rehabilitation work involving flood-proofing and related mitigation efforts that would serve to reduce or eliminate the impact of future natural disasters.
Five separate programs were initially proposed and included under the AHP portion of Illinois' overall CDBG Ike Disaster Recovery Program. In IHDA’s administration of the AHP, it found a significant demand for public housing repair, rural housing rehabilitation, and permanent supportive housing. The HUD-approved Ike Substantial Plan Amendment #12 eliminated two programs and reallocated funding to the public housing repair, rural development rehabilitation, and permanent supportive housing programs.
On May 2, 2011, IHDA received seven applications for Public Housing Rehabilitation Grants, which are summarized in the CDBG IKE Public Housing Rehab Applicant List and Review Schedule.
On July 15, 2011, IHDA’s board approved $4.5 million in CDBG – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grants for five public housing authorities (PHAs) for capital improvement repair/rehabilitation projects in the eligible counties.
On August 29, 2011, IHDA received nine applications for USDA Rural Development 515 Acquisition/Rehabilitation Grants, which are summarized in the CDBG IKE Rural Development Rehab Applicant List and Review Schedule.
On December 16, 2011, the Authority’s Board of Directors approved $5,315,921 in Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grants for six rural development rehabilitation projects in eligible counties. The approved grants are summarized in the following document:
On August 29, 2011, IHDA received eight applications for CDBG Ike Permanent Supportive Housing Grants, which are summarized in the CDBG IKE Permanent Supportive Housing Applicant List and Review Schedule.
On December 16, 2011, the Authority’s Board of Directors approved $7,634,338 in Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) grants for five permanent supportive housing projects in eligible counties. The approved grants are summarized in the following document:
