In accordance with 24 CFR 91.05(c)(2) and subpart B of the federal regulations relative to citizen participation for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and other Community Planning and Development Programs under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and applicable waivers made available to those requirements through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, the Kaua’i County Housing Agency (KCHA) gives notice of the following changes to the Annual Action Plan (AAP).
The first proposed amendment constitutes a substantial amendment to AAP PY19. Under the CARES Act, KCHA will receive $677,028.00 from a special allocation of CDBG Coronavirus, third round, CDBG-CV3 grant funds to be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19). KCHA proposes to use funds to facilitate assistance to eligible communities, households, and persons economically impacted by COVID-19. The following project is proposed:
Project: Project Hiehie Kaua’i – $541,622.00
Organization: Project Vision Hawai’i
Description: Bring mobile health, hygiene and vital support services to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 for low- to moderate income individuals or families experiencing homelessness.
Project: CDBG-CV Administration – $135,406.00

AAP PY20 HUD Allocation: $702,854.00
AAP PY20 HUD Corrected Allocation: $703,412.00
Description: HUD announced a correction to the formula allocation resulting in an increase of $558.00. Additionally, KCHA will add $399.00 in program income funds/revolving loan funds for a total of $957.00 to CDBG PY20 admin funds in order to account for the shortage originally identified in the initial allocation.
