CDBG CARES Act Webinar Series: Using CDBG-CV for Rural Economic Development


October 28, 2021 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT



The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) makes $5 billion in Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) response funds available to CDBG grantees. The CDBG-CV Federal Register Notice (FR-6218-N-01) was released on August 7, 2020. The notice describes the allocations and grant procedures applicable to the CDBG-CV grants. It also describes the program flexibilities, waivers, and alternative requirements that apply to the CDBG-CV grants as well as the fiscal year 2019 and 2020 CDBG grants.

This is the companion webinar to the CDBG-CV Rural Economic Development Quick Guide. The webinar will be presented in a panel format and include insights from rural economic development experts regarding resources to help states and rural grantees support the more robust local economic development infrastructure needed for their COVID-19 pandemic recovery. Attendees will also hear directly from grantees and subrecipients on best practices they’ve encountered in delivering successful programs to rural small businesses and their partners.

This webinar is part of the CDBG CARES Act Webinar Series which provides CDBG-CV grantees and subrecipients with important information on how these funds can be used to help communities prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus. View other trainings in the CDBG CARES Act Webinar Series.
