CDBG CARES Act Webinar Series: Working with CDBG-CV Subrecipients to Expand Programs


January 11, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST



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.

Subrecipient organizations are essential partners in developing and implementing CDBG-CV programs designed to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus. This two-part webinar focused on how CDBG grantees can strengthen their subrecipient management practices and achieve their program goals while remaining in compliance with the CARES Act and federal regulations and requirements.

This first session discussed ways to strategically identify, partner with, and manage CDBG-CV subrecipients to address changing community needs resulting from the local impact of the coronavirus. The session also introduced the use of the subrecipient agreement as a management tool and identified special considerations for CDBG-CV subrecipients.

Participants were invited to submit questions to HUD and technical assistance providers.

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.
