City Solicits Input on Gentilly Resilience District (GRD) Action Plan

February 2, 2021   |    Category: District D    |   Tagged as: Gentilly Resilience District

The City of New Orleans is continuing to seek input for the reallocation and use of the $141 million in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)/National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC) grant funding for the Gentilly Resilience District (GRD). The NDR Action Plan Substantial Amendment #1 proposes to reallocate $13.8 million in funding between designated projects and programs. In order to ensure that the public has an opportunity to learn about the changes and provide comment, a second virtual public hearing will be held on Thursday, Feb. 4, at 6 p.m. The comment period has now been extended until 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22.   


The City has identified $13.8 million in administrative and management budget that will be moved into the design and construction budget, which will effectively add more stormwater management and recreational features throughout the GRD. The full details on how the funding would be reallocated are posted here on the City’s website. 


Written comments can be sent to OCD’s CDBG Disaster Unit at by 5 p.m. on Jan. 22, or submitted via the comment card here.
