As a provision of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act adopted in March, the City is slated to receive approximately $7.5 million in additional HUD funding to prepare for and respond to the coronavirus pandemic. The additional funding will be added in the form of an amendment to the 2019-20 Consolidated Community Plan/Annual Action Plan, the budget for the City's annual HUD allocation.
The public comment period on the proposed amendment begins today, Friday, May 1 through 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 6 and will conclude with an online public meeting of the Rochester City Council to be held at 5 p.m., Thursday, May 7.
The funds would be used for such purposes as economic development; housing services; closing the digital divide; providing support services for the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless; a contingency fund to be allocated based on the needs of the community in relation to the coronavirus epidemic; with the remainder to be used for administering the program. Funds could also be allocated to organizations that are providing services to the homeless and those at risk of homelessness or individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
