Housing and Community Development Programs

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers programs that allocate housing and community development assistance, providing fair and equal housing opportunities nationally. HUD offers flexible programs to assist with long-term recovery needs.

Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR)

This program uses funds to help cities, counties, and states recover from disasters. CDBG-DR focuses on long-term recovery efforts and addressing needs that other federal funding may have neglected. Tidal Basin experts have experience applying for and managing these funds for communities that qualify. Our team recognizes the requirements and processes to follow to ensure compliance. We understand the national objectives that must be met when applying for CDBG funds.

Community Development Block Grant-Mitigation (CDBG-MIT)

CDBG-MIT funds allow eligible grantees to utilize this assistance in areas impacted by recent disasters to carry out strategic and high-impact activities that mitigate disaster risks and reduce future losses. HUD determines that CDBG-MIT activities should align with other federal programs that address hazard mitigation to create a more cohesive effort at the federal, state, and local levels. Our housing and mitigation experts are well-versed in the policies and processes surrounding CDBG-MIT and have experience managing these funds for communities who qualify for the support.


Since President Biden’s inception of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has continued to collaborate with federal agencies at various levels of government to ensure communities nationwide are well-equipped to make the necessary enhancements to the infrastructure in these communities. Tidal Basin has one of the most robust teams addressing the funding streams available for infrastructure enhancements, specific to quality housing, broadband, climate resilience and other areas of infrastructure.

Your knowledge of the complex governmental regulations and equally complex insurance and adjusting issues really helped the county maximize the public assistance that was available after all of these disasters. You delivered what you promised, and we are confident in your ability and the ability of your firm to provide these services fully on a technical and professional level yet be able to translate clearly and concisely the intricate and sometimes subjective FEMA regulations which we could not have done without you.

The State of Alaska…[has] a significant investment in the disaster recovery process for both state and federally declared events…. The collaboration with Tidal Basin in these efforts has been so successful and seamless that in most instances applicants and FEMA staff don’t even realize we have contractors on board unless we tell them. Our interaction with Tidal Basin staff and managers works and feels like true teammates and the result is a faster, more comprehensive delivery of disaster recovery resources to survivors.

Months after the storm passed, the County was still faced with tremendous burdens related to the insurance coverage issues and FEMA and MEMA eligibility issues. Jackson County hired your organization to provide professional services for disaster assistance, remediation, restoration and recovery efforts….Their expertise with governmental regulations, the complex FEMA process and insurance adjustments resulted in our successful claim for over $2 million in additional FEMA Public Assistance funding specifically; in our successful negotiations with our insurance carrier; and in numerous other increases in the values FEMA and MEMA initially designated for County projects. Jackson County will always be mindful of the help we received from you when we needed it most.
