CBDG - COVID-19 Funded Activites
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Congress passed HR 78, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Stimulus Act, (CARES Act) on March 27, 2020. Following the CARES Act, the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) notified the City of Mesquite that it would receive $1,583,307 in Community Development Block Grant – COVID-19 (CDBG-CV) funds for emergency assistance to individuals, families, public service agencies and small businesses directly impacted by COVID-19.
In addition to the valuable programs featured, CDBG-CV is also a proud funder of the City of Mesquite’s Housing Rehabilitation Program to assist qualified homeowners with emergency home repairs that threaten health and safety.
