Baldwin County expects to receive up to a total of $44,361,686.00 in CDBG-DR funds, corresponding to ADECA’s allocation received from HUD with $1,000,000.00 to be used toward planning, $19,219,010.00 to be used toward housing, and $24,142,676.00 to be used toward non-housing projects.

The Baldwin County Commission, as a sub-recipient of ADECA will utilize CDBG-DR funds to implement a wide range of housing, infrastructure, economic development, and mitigation activities.
