Getting Started

Following the appropriation of supplemental CDBG-CV funds, HUD allocated funds in three phases to states and CDBG entitlement communities. On August 20, 2020, HUD published the Federal Register Notice of Program Rules, Waivers, and Alternative Requirements Under the CARES Act for Community Development Block Grant Program Coronavirus Response Grants, Fiscal Year 2019 and 2020 Community Development Block Grants, and for Other Formula Programs (the Notice), which provides guidance, rules, and waivers governing CDBG-CV funds. It is critical that grantees understand these rules and waivers, so you should review the Notice and you may want to create a written summary as a reference and to brief public officials and staff in your agency.
