Title

Approving a Substantial Amendment to the City's FY19 Annual Action Plan to include supplemental CDBG-CV and ESG-CV grant funds awarded to the City of Madison by HUD as part of the 2020 CARES Act; amending the adopted 2020 Operating Budget of the Community Development Division to recognize the additional grant revenue and commensurate expenditures; and authorizing the CD Division to issue one or more RFPs to allocate the funds.

Body

Background:

In March 2020, Congress passed and the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act"), which provides critical supplemental funding to communities in their local response efforts to the COVID-19 pandemic. Acceptance of the CARES Act funds that are allocated via HUD's Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) requires a HUD Grantee to submit a Substantial Amendment to its FY19 Annual Action Plan.

 

The City of Madison has been awarded $1,160,897 in supplemental Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds and $2,890,929 in supplemental Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV) funds through the CARES Act, to help prevent, prepare for and respond to coronavirus. These funds can used to support local Action Plan objectives that include Housing Assistance, Small Business (Micro-Enterprise) Development, and public services at Neighborhood Centers, as well as administration costs associated with the management of funded contracts. Specific allocation decisions will be determined by CDD via one or more Request for Proposal (RFP) processes, to be conducted over the next few months.
