Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) / Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) Programs 

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, was signed, providing $5 billion for CDBG to rapidly respond to COVID-19 and the economic and housing impacts caused by this unprecedented crisis.  At the May 27, 2020 Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board approved the allocations for the first round of CDBG-CV funding ($861,295) for activities that prepare, prevent, and respond to the coronavirus in Chesterfield County. On September 11, 2020, Chesterfield was awarded an additional $1,216,799 in CDBG-CV to address continued needs related to the pandemic. At their December 16, 2020 meeting, the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors approved the allocations for the $1,216,799. The funding will go towards existing CDBG-CV subrecipients to provide additional support to their successful, ongoing CBDG-CV funded activities, as well as towards new public service activities responding to COVID-19. Review the approved allocations here.

Due to a canceled program from the first round of CDBG-CV funding, $120,000 became available for reprogramming. County staff proposes to reprogram the funds as follows: 

  1. $120,000 for Communities in Schools: COVID-19 Student Support Programs. This will be in addition to the $150,600 allocated to this program at the December 16th Board Meeting  for a total of $270,600.
