The City of New Braunfels has been fortunate to receive a special allocation to our Community Development Block Grant funds that will be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19). This allocation was authorized by 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. The CARES Act will provide $243,102 in Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funds to the City.
As such, the City is requesting applications from non-profit agencies and other eligible entities for participation in the CDBG-CV program for the period of March 1, 2020, through September 30, 2022. Funds may be used for a wide range of activities that must be associated with COVID-19 and all eligible activities must meet one of the three National Objectives: 1) Benefit low to moderate-income persons, 2) Aid in the prevention of slums and blight, or 3) meet other urgent community needs such as disaster relief.
Eligible activities include, but are not limited to, Public Services, Buildings and Improvements (including Public Facilities), and Assistance to Businesses (including Special Economic Development Assistance).
Complete Hard Copy or Electronic application packets will be accepted until May 8, 2020, by 4:00 PM local time. Late applications will not be accepted or eligible for funding. CDBG-CV applications are available on this website or by written request to Jennifer Gates, Grants Coordinator, at JGates@nbtexas.org.
