BREAKING IT DOWN:

Step 1: NOFA, or Notice of Funding Availability, is HUD’s official announcement that these funds are available and eligible communities can apply for a piece of them. The NOFA was released on September 17, 2014.

Step 2: The first phase of the competition is 180 days of meeting with partners, generating ideas, and consulting with community stakeholders to define what our community wants to achieve toward a more resilient future. Applications from Phase I were due on March 26, 2015.

Step 3: Phase I winners announced 60 days after the applications are submitted. There are smaller awards available for communities that aren’t invited to make a Phase II submission ($500,000-$2.5 million).

Step 4: Phase II is where it gets real–specific plans, specific commitments from partners, and a need to work out all the details. This phase lasts 120 days after the Phase II winners are announced. To create the most compelling and competitive application, Minnesota is starting Phase II community engagement April 1. Learn more about how to get involved here.

Step 5: National Disaster Resilience Competition WINNERS are announced…and the real work begins!
