The Disaster Response program is designed for communities experiencing an imminent and urgent threat to public health and safety as indicated by a disaster declaration by the Governor of the State of Illinois. Communities that do not receive a direct allocation of CDBG funds may apply for interim assistance reimbursement. Depending on funding availability, grant awards may be made up to $500,000.
