The HUD CDBG-DR program does not decide whether a home needs to be elevated. Homes that are located inside a floodplain and which are substantially damaged, as determined by the local jurisdiction, will require elevation to the HUD CDBG-DR program requirements of two (2) feet above the Base Flood Elevation (BFE), two (2) feet above the Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE), or the local jurisdiction requirement, whichever is greater, in order to be compliant with HUD federal registry 81 FR 83254 (November 21, 2016).
