Pursuant to the passed CARE's Act, the Lake County Community Economic Development Department (LCCEDD) is receiving another allotment of CV3 (CoVid Round 3) funds of $1,222,974.00 in HUD Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. These additional monies must be used to "prevent, prepare for and respond to the coronavirus" pandemic.

HUD has required that LCCEDD seek input from all of our partner communities (16 smaller cities and towns), all of our social service agencies, and county officials for use the funds. Therefore, the attached notice is an over five day time period for receiving input from partners for the uses of the funds.
Recipients of CDBG CV Round 1 funds (May-June 2020) that have NOT submitted invoices for the allotment provided might NOT receive funds for Round 3.
Please send either an email or a letter requesting funds with description of uses to anticipate and/or offset costs associated with coronavirus. We do not need to know exact amounts at this time, just need.
Based on your input, a Plan Amendment to the FY2019 Annual Plan for LCCEDD will be developed and a public notice for public comment will be sent out on November 6th, 2020 for a five day comment period starting 11-9-2020.
Once the comment period is over (by 11-13-2020) a plan amendment will be submitted to HUD and a process will be created by LCCEDD to document past, current and future costs related to fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
