by Thunda

The County of Hawaiʻi’s Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD) is set to receive approximately $978,184 in a second allocation of federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV2) funding as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).  
Under the CDBG-CV2 program, grants or loan assistance may be used by eligible public agencies and private non-profit organizations to prevent, prepare and respond to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are intended to target public health, housing and economic recovery needs in Hawaiʻi County that benefit low- and moderate-income persons.  Projects could include constructing testing, diagnosis or treatment facilities; supporting new businesses or business expansion to create jobs in response to COVID-19; improving facilities to support social distancing and increased sanitation; and expanding microenterprises that address specific needs during quarantine related to medical assistance, food delivery, cleaning, and other essential services.  Special preference will be given to proposed projects meeting the urgent needs of low- and moderate-income persons affected by COVID-19 as well as those that aid in stimulating the local economy.

The proposal forms and federal guidelines covering the eligible activities will be available beginning today, June 22 at the locations below or at the OHCD website  Original proposals with supporting documentation plus two (2) copies must be received by 4:30 p.m. on July 13, 2020 at:
