Consider a resolution amending the the 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan.
The 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan (AP) sets forth specific activities and expenditures using funds received through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The Annual Action Plan is being amended to reflect the emergency allocation of funds received through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) stimulus funding to address coronavirus (COVID-19) relief needs.
The impact of the virus has resulted in a public health crisis and an economic crisis. Staff has been in direct communication with local service agencies and providers such as, Hearts and Hands of Baytown, Love Network, Baytown Resource and Assistance Center, and Baytown Meals on Wheels. These community partners have helped to identify the types of services that need additional funding. The City of Baytown is allotted $401,242 to prepare, prevent, and respond to coronavirus. These funds are also known as CDBG-CV grant funds. The Community Development Advisory Committee is proposing to use the funds as follows:
Public Service Grants
Emergency Housing Assistance
Essential Childcare Assistance
The substantial amendment to the Annual Action Plan inserts and reflects the proposed use of the CDBG-CV grant funds. The public comment period concerning the use of the funds extends from June 6, 2020, to June 12, 2020. The amended Annual Action Plan is attached for your consideration.
The Community Development Advisory Committee recommends approval.
