Skokie CDBG-CV Residential Financial Assistance Program

Organization Application

In April 2020, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated CARES Act funding to eligible communities, including Skokie.  The Village will receive $361,988 in Community Development Block Grant – CARES Act (CDBG-CV) funding.  The CDBG-CV program is built off the standard CDBG program, with a few adjustments.  Several programs are envisioned for Skokie’s CDBG-CV funds, including approximately $100,000 in rent, mortgage, and/or utility subsistence payment assistance to low/moderate-income Skokie households negatively impacted by COVID-19 financially.

Organizations with the capacity to qualify low/moderate-income households per HUD requirements and assist with processing up to three months of housing-related payments per household have submitted proposals which are currently under review by Village staff.  Next steps will be announced by early August 2020.
