Notice of 2nd Public Hearing for City of Pearland’s

Community Development Block Grant Program

Action Plan Amendments and Additional Funding

The City of Pearland is preparing to make an emergency Action Plan Amendment to its FY 2020 Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG), in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus). The City will conduct this public hearing to provide information about the spending activities involving the reallocation of funds in support of urgent needs involving Pearland social service agencies. The 1st Public Hearing was held on May 18, 2020 and initiated a 9-day comment period from May 21 – May 29, 2020, for citizens and public officials to provide input, discussion and make recommendations on the amendment of the City’s Plan. The official public comment period from            May 21 – May 29, 2020 has been closed. No comments have been received by staff, in support or opposition to the City’s proposed reallocation of funds. The 2nd Public Hearing will take place via web-based videoconference on June 8, 2020 – 6:30 PM

About the Amendment and Additional Funding

The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) provides an annual formula allocation of funding to the City, via the CDBG program. CDBG funding is available to serve low-moderate income individuals, households and areas of the Entitlement Jurisdiction, which in the case of Pearland began in 2006 when its population exceeded 50,000. In August of 2019, Pearland City Council approved the City’s FY 2020 CDBG Annual Action Plan, which included $60,000 intended to match other funding for the renovation and historic preservation of the Pearland Train Depot.

With the recent pandemic, the sense of urgency in providing assistance to major local public health and economic challenges stemming from the global coronavirus outbreak compels the City to reallocate those funds to local social service agencies that support individuals and households with COVID-19 related needs. The City intends to reprogram the $60,000 originally intended for improvements to the Pearland Train Depot as follows:

• provide ActionS of Brazoria $20,000 for meals and related delivery services for elderly and disabled residents in Pearland;

• provide Counseling Connections for Change $20,000 for mental health counseling services and tele-medicine capabilities, serving low-moderate income and un/under-insured Pearland residents impacted by COVID-19; and

• provide Pearland Neighborhood Center with $20,000 in emergency subsistence funding for rent and utility assistance to Pearlandlow-moderate income residents impacted by COVID-19.

In addition, the recent White House approval of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allows for the allocation of additional funds to the City of Pearland, via HUD’s issuance of a special apportionment of CDBG funds (CDBG-CV) specifically for use in response to COVID-19. A total of $251,873 in additional CDBG funds will be made available to the City, which will be the subject of additional planning and implementation activities in the near future. This public hearing will also be used to inform the public about the availability of those funds and what they may and may not be used for.
