Grant Administration
The Disaster Recovery CDBG Grantee Administrative Manual is provided to assist Louisiana Disaster Recovery Community Development Block Grant grantees and Subrecipients (parishes and units of local government) in implementing disaster recovery grants. It provides guidance regarding the general requirements included in all Cooperative Endeavor Agreements (CEAs) that apply to parishes and units of local government.

You can get the most recent Update Pack, Version 3.8 here. (Updated 10/3/2016)
On June 28, 2012, OCD-DRU presented a webinar about Monitoring and Close-Out Procedures, addressing Chapters 12 and 13 of the Administration Manual.‚Äč
