POTENTIAL PROGRAM(S) FOR INCLUSION IN THE STATE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT CORONAVIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY ACT (CDBG-CV) APPLICATION – The Board of Supervisors will consider potential CDBG-CV programs and provide direction for staff to prepare an application in response to the release of the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for CDBG-CV funds for COVID-19 related activities that benefit low- and moderate-income residents.

On March 27, 2020, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is will be publishing a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CDBG-CV1, CV2 and CV3) funds. Eligible cities and counties may submit applications for CDBG-CV funds under the upcoming NOFA. It is estimated that the County of Calaveras will be eligible to receive funds based on a formula allocation provided by HCD. The County is expected to receive a total of $173,220 under CV1 funding and a total of $633,335 for CV2 and CV3 funding.

In addition, eligible activities must be used directly to prevent, prepare for or respond to COVID-19 and meet CDBG requirements as provided and directed by HCD in the published NOFA and outlined in their plan as follows:

• Public services to respond to COVID-19 impacts

• Housing facilities for persons experiencing homelessness, including acquisition and rehabilitation
• Economic development to support needs of local businesses to retain and bring back jobs impacted by COVID-19
