The State of Nebraska will hold a public comment period and host a public hearing to discuss a substantial amendment to its 2019 Annual Action Plan. The amendment being proposed relates to funding from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act; specifically, the funding falls under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus Response (CDBG-CV) program.
This amendment will be available electronically for public comment from October 11, 2022, through October 20, 2022 (see below for how to submit a public comment).
HUD has allocated $14,130,912 for CDBG-CV under the CARES Act. The Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) is responsible for administering CDBG-CV funds on behalf of the State. This allocation was split into three method-of-distribution categories: Coronavirus Related Emergency Payments; Economic Development; and Emergent Threat. The purpose of the amendment under discussion is to reallocate a portion of funding from the original method-of-distribution category of Coronavirus Related Emergency Payments to Economic Development and Emergent Threat categories. Refer to the draft 2019 Annual Action Plan Substantial Amendment – Proposed October 2022 to review this information; this document can be found at https://opportunity.nebraska.gov/reports.
