From Planning to Recovery
CDBG-DR + Housing
Metric Consulting has been administering CDBG-DR programs since 2010, and our team offers a combined 75 years of experience in CDBG-DR administration for clients around the country.

Field Debris Monitors audit and track contractor trucks (following them on their route to clear debris) as a representative of the government to ensure that loads are properly identified and tracked.
When disaster strikes, restoring public safety and eliminating threats to lives and public health cannot wait. Return to normalcy is the first step in the road to recovery. Our goal is the same as yours – to restore normalcy as fast as possible while leveraging every federal dollar in your recovery process.
Our team is experienced in performing environmental review of HUD-funded projects for our clients, ensuring that projects do not negatively impact the surrounding environment. We have particular experience with Wetlands, Coastal Zones, and Endangered Species reviews in Texas, Louisiana, and Florida.

We understand the regulations and details governing FEMA PA. We provide accessible interpretations of policy, and actionable guidance, which gives our clients fast results and the peace of mind that recovery funds are spent in compliance with governing regulation.
We have experience and proven flexibility managing a wide variety of grants for our clients. We guide your grant selection to leverage federal dollars from multiple funding streams to ensure your recovery is as comprehensive as possible. Grant management is complex.
