CITY OF LAKEPORT: NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

CITY OF LAKEPORT

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

 

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Lakeport will conduct a Public Meeting at 5:00 p.m., or soon thereafter, on Monday, August 31, 2020 via teleconference (see teleconferencing instructions below) to consider the following item:

SUBJECT:

 

POTENTIAL PROGRAM(S) FOR INCLUSION IN THE STATE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT CORONAVIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY ACT (CDBG-CV) APPLICATION – The City will consider potential CDBG-CV programs and provide direction for staff to prepare an application in response to the release of the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for CDBG-CV funds for COVID-19 related activities that benefit low- and moderate-income residents.

 

On March 27, 2020, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is expected to publish a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CDBG-CV) funds. Eligible cities and counties may submit applications for CDBG-CV funds under the NOFA. It is estimated that The City of Lakeport will be eligible to receive up to $70,681 based on a formula provided by HCD.

 

Eligible activities paid for with State CDBG funds must meet one or more of the three National Objectives listed in CDBG Federal Statutes as follows: benefit to low-income households or persons (also called Low/Mod Benefit), elimination of slums and blight, or meeting urgent community development need (a need resulting from a state or federal declared disaster). In addition, eligible activities must be used directly to prevent, prepare for or respond to COVID-19 and meet CDBG requirements as provided and directed by HCD.

 

The City of Lakeport anticipates submitting an application under this NOFA, when released. The City does not expect to expend any Program Income dollars in the next program year/contract term.

 

The City promotes fair housing and makes all its programs available to low- and moderate-income families regardless of age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual preference, marital status or handicap.

 

Where You Come In:

The purpose of this public meeting is to give citizens an opportunity to make their comments known regarding what types of eligible activities the City should be applying for under the State CDBG program.
