Notice of 1st Public Hearing

for City of Pearland’s

Community Development Block Grant Program\

FY 2021 Action Plan and Additional COVID-19 CDBG Funding

The City of Pearland is preparing to develop and implement spending plans for three allocations of Community Development Block Grant funds issued to the City by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development:

1. HUD annual allocation of $428,160 as part of the City’s regular FY 2021 entitlement jurisdiction CDBG funding;

2. CDBG Coronavirus Stimulus (CDBG-CV) allocation package #1 for $251,873 in response to COVID-19; and

3. CDBG Coronavirus Stimulus (CDBG-CV) allocation package #2 for $443,583, also in response to COVID-19.

This public hearing will initiate a 9-day comment period from October 13 – 21, 2020, for citizens and public officials to provide input, discussion and make recommendations on the City’s action plans for these allocations. The public hearing will take place via web-based videoconference on October 12, 2020 – 6:30 PM

About the 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 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.

In addition to the normal allocation totaling $428,160 for the FY 2021 Pearland CDBG program, a total of $695,456 in additional CDBG funds will be made available to the City through the end of FY 2022. 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.
