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.

Eligible activities paid for with State CDBG funds must meet one of the three National Objectives listed in CDBG Federal Statutes as follows: benefit to low-income households or persons (also called Low/Mod Benefit), slum and blight (addressing physical problems in specific neighborhoods) or meeting urgent community development need (a need resulting from a state or federal declared disaster or posing unforeseen risks to health and safety).

• 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

The County of Calaveras anticipates submitting an application under this NOFA. The County does not expect to expend any Program Income dollars in the next program year/contract term.

Angels Camp, CA...From Habitat for Humanity Calaveras..."Instead of gathering for our traditional Hoedown BBQ picnic in Murphys Park this year, Habitat for Humanity Calaveras has partnered with Greater Giving to host the first ever Online Hoedown for Humanity. Greater Giving is an organization the deals exclusively with non-profits to help them create fundraisers like ours.

We need your support this year more than any time in our 21-year history. We are currently getting the licenses, permits and approvals needed to build over 100 affordable workforce homes in Angels Camp over the next decade. Known as the “Copello Development”, this new neighborhood will sit on 17 acres of land generously donated by a local resident. All proceeds from our Online Hoedown will go to help fund the start-up costs of this vitally important project – over $200,000 before construction can even begin. Funds raised by the Online Hoedown stay here in Calaveras County to support local business and government entities. This strengthens the local economy and creates jobs.

We appreciate your support."
