RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE a Substantial Amendment to the County's FY 2020/21 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program Action Plan, by awarding $25,000 in CDBG funds to Community Housing Development Corporation of North Richmond (CHDC) for the operation of programs within the Multicultural/Senior Family Community Center, located in North Richmond.

FISCAL IMPACT:

CDBG funds are provided to the County on a formula allocation basis by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - CFDA #14.218. Due to the cancellation of other CDBG projects identified in the FY 2020/21 CDBG Action Plan, funding is available for this award. There is no fiscal impact to the County's General Fund.

BACKGROUND:

On May 12, 2020, the Board of Supervisors approved the Contra Costa County CDBG Action Plan for FY 2020/21 funds. CHDC did not apply for FY 2020/21 CDBG funds for its Multicultural/Senior Family Community Center during the normal cycle. However, additional CDBG funds have since become available due to the cancellation of other CDBG projects identified in the FY 2020/21 CDBG Action Plan, namely Rising Sun Center for Opportunity's Climate Careers program, and Loaves and Fishes' Culinary Training


BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)
Program. Meanwhile, CHDC requested the option to apply for any available funds as a midyear application due to needs that have arisen during the shelter in place. Consequently, CDBG staff recommends reallocating $25,000 in CDBG funds to CHDC for the operation of programs within the Multicultural/Senior Family Community Center, which provides educational, recreational, and nutritional services to residents of North Richmond, with a focus on senior citizens.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

Not approving the Substantial Amendment will halt or limit the community center's ability to provide programming to the residents of North Richmond.

CHILDREN'S IMPACT STATEMENT:

Programming at the North Richmond Multicultural/Senior Family Community Center furthers the Children's Report Card outcome of helping families to be safe, stable, and nurturing.
