The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, which was signed by President Trump on March 27, 2020, to respond to the growing effects of this historic public health crisis, made available $5 billion in Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funds for eligible communities.
The City of Hopkinsville, Kentucky is the recipient of $159,046 in CDBG-CV direct funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The funding is intended to be utilized to prevent, prepare, and respond to the effects of the novel coronavirus. Therefore, the City of Hopkinsville intends to make the funds available to eligible sub-recipients for use in these specific areas, through an application process. Consideration for funding amounts will be made with respect to agency need, number of clients to be served, and agency’s ability to spend the funds in a timely manner in an effort to maximize the positive impacts in Hopkinsville. All grants will be provided on a reimbursable basis; therefore, all program requirements must be met prior to receiving any CDBG-CV funding.
