The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("Recovery Act") was signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009. The Recovery Act awards $1 billion in CDBG Recovery (CDBG-R) funds to be distributed to cities, counties, insular areas and states, of which $10 million has been reserved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for its administrative costs and $10 million of which will be awarded to Indian tribes. Recipients of the remaining $980 million of CDBG-R funds will be the approximately 1,200 jurisdictions that received CDBG funding in Fiscal Year 2008.
