HUD published the Federal Register notice providing for the use of the $157M CDBG-MIT funds August 30, 2019. In January 2020, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) notified the State of South Carolina that it would receive $4,598,000 in supplemental CDBG-MIT grant funds, bringing the total State of South Carolina CDBG-MIT allocation to $162,188,000.

The South Carolina Disaster Recovery Office (SCDRO) will use Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) grant funds for mitigation activities that will increase resilience to disasters and reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of loss of life, injury, damage to and loss of property, and suffering and hardship, by lessening the impact of future disasters.
