CDBG-CV Request for Qualifications and Proposals
The City of Ashland has been fortunate to receive a special allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds that will be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19). This allocation was authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, which was signed by President Trump on March 27, 2020, to respond to the growing effects of this historic public health crisis. The CARES Act will provide an additional $104,079 in Community Development Block Grant funds specifically aimed at addressing issues arising from the Coronavirus pandemic. These funds are being called CDBG-CV funds. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has waived some CDBG statutory requirements for grantees that will enable swift implementation of CDBG-CV grants.
The CDBG-CV funds allocated under the CARES Act may be used for a range of eligible activities that prevent and respond to the spread of infectious diseases such as the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The City of Ashland is accepting proposals to address urgent needs related to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Proposed activities must also meet one of the three National Objectives as required by CDBG regulation:
Proposals much address how they will prevent, prepare for and/or respond to issues arising from the Coronavirus Pandemic.
