Title

Approving and authorizing the submission, to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, of a second Substantial Amendment to the City's FY19 Annual Action Plan necessary to reflect receipt of additional supplemental CDBG-CV grant funds awarded to the City of Madison through the 2020 CARES Act; and amending the adopted 2021 Operating Budget of the Community Development Division to recognize the additional grant revenue and commensurate expenditure authority.

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 (AAP).

 

The City of Madison was initially 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 the coronavirus.  The Council authorized the submission of, and HUD approved, an initial Substantial Amendment to Madison's FY19 AAP to accept those funds in August 2020 (RES-20-00550, Legistar #61295).  Subsequently, HUD awarded the City an additional $1,442,062 in supplemental CDBG-CV funds, triggering the need for a second Substantial Amendment to the City's FY19 AAP.

 

The CARES Act funds can be used to support local Action Plan objectives that include Child Care, Housing Assistance (Tenant Services), and Homeless Services (Emergency Shelter Operations and Outreach), as well as administration costs associated with the management of funded contracts. In coming months, CDD will allocate funds to further established Plan objectives and in accordance with other relevant HUD guidelines governing their use.
