The City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Community Services, through its Department of Budget and Fiscal Services Purchasing Division, is soliciting applications from private nonprofit agencies and public agencies for the following program:
The COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM (CDBG), authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended 42 U.S.C.-530.1 et seq. Up to approximately $9,534,509.00 in funding through the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” (CARES Act) is anticipated to be available for community development projects that prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus, or mitigate the impacts created by the coronavirus on O’ahu, and that principally benefit persons of low- and moderate-income. Eligible clients to be served are those earning 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and below.
Funds must be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus and/or mitigate the impacts created by the coronavirus on O’ahu. Funds must also benefit persons of low- and moderate-income.
Activities eligible for funding through this Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) are those activities eligible under 24 CFR Part 570, Subpart C, including acquisitions, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, and installations, except that proposals for public services under 24 CFR 570.201(e) will not be eligible for funding through this NOFA. Proposals must meet the National Objective of benefitting low- and moderate-income persons in accordance with 24 CFR 570.208(a), and priority will be given to projects that increase O’ahu’s affordable housing inventory and support non-congregate shelter space as a means to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus, or mitigate the impacts created by the coronavirus on O’ahu. In order to expeditiously meet the needs of the community and confront the coronavirus pandemic, priority will be given to projects that will begin benefitting clients during 2021.
All grants by the City to private organizations under this NOFA, and any permissible subgrants by awardees to private organizations, are subject to Chapter 6, Article 29 of the Revised Ordinances of Honolulu 1990, as amended.
