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.
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.
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
