In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allocated Community Development Block Grant CARES Act (CDBG-CV) funding to the Village of Skokie. The Village has budgeted approximately $350,000 to support COVID-related expenses incurred by public services providers since March 1, 2020, to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. The CDBG-CV funds were authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) announced last year.
After careful consideration of the CDBG-CV guidelines, the Village identified the following priority activities to meet the needs of the community with this application:
Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA) Group Homes
Other Health and Human Services
The Village may consider funding other activities as long as they meet CDBG-CV eligibility requirements.
Expenses cannot be paid for twice; therefore, be sure to request reimbursement for COVID-related expenses incurred by your organization that have not already been reimbursed by other federal, state, or local sources, or from insurance claims.
Organizations interested in potentially receiving grant funds must complete and submit a CDBG-CV CARES Act Application no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, March 22, 2021.
