CDBG-MIT funds represent a unique and significate opportunity for grantees to use the assistance in areas impacted by recent disasters to carry out strategic and high-impact activities to mitigate disaster risks and reduce future losses. While it is impossible the eliminate all risks, CDBG-MIT funds will enable grantees to mitigate against disaster risks, which at the same time allowing grantees the opportunity to transform state and local planning. — U.S. Housing and Urban Development, Federal Register Notice, August 30, 2019, page 45838.

Citizens Advisory Committee
As a recipient for the CDBG(MIT) Funding, HCD must establish a Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). Per federal guidelines, the CAC must meet in an open forum at least twice annually to:
- Provide increased transparency of the implementation of CDBG-MIT funds.
- Solicit and respond to public comments and input regarding grantee activities.
- Serve as an ongoing public forum to continuously inform the grantee’s CDBG-MIT projects and programs.
Through SB 246, the Governor’s Office of Planning & Research (OPR) runs the Integrated Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program (ICARP). Per the enabling statute, the ICARP Technical Advisory Council (TAC) supports OPR in its goal to facilitate coordination among state, regional, and local adaptation and resiliency efforts, with a focus on opportunities to support local implementation actions that improve the quality of life for present and future generations. Given the programmatic and policy alignment between the Integrated Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program and HCD’s Disaster Recovery programs, plus the benefit of leveraging the ICARP TAC as an existing, transparent, and open public body, HCD and OPR agree the ICARP TAC is well-positioned to serve as HCD’s CAC for purposes of fulfilling the CDBG-MIT grant requirements.CAC Meeting Materials
