Reason for Recommended Action/Background
On March 27, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the US Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act for states to prevent, prepare for, or respond to COVID-19.  In July 2020, the California Department of Housing and Community Development (“DHCD”) issued a Notice of Funding Availability (“NOFA”) for a first round of funding under the CARES Act through the Emergency Solutions Grants (“ESG”) Program (“Program”), which are referred to as ESG-CV funds.  In October 2020, DHCD issued another NOFA for additional ESG-CV funding. 
 
On November 3, 2020 the Board passed a Resolution (Resolution No. 20-124) accepting an allocation of ESG-CV funds up to $5,263,815 for the Davis, Woodland/Yolo County Continuum of Care (“CoC”) for the period of January 21, 2020 through September 30, 2022.  In November 2021, the CoC was notified of additional available ESG-CV funding up to a new total maximum amount of $10,600,915 requiring an updated Resolution to accept any additional awarded funds.
 
The ESG-CV funds are awarded to eligible service providers for eligible activities in approved Continuum of Care (“CoC”) Services Areas in support of COVID-19 response activities.  The NOFA provides funding for the following objectives:
  • Prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus among individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or receiving homeless assistance
  • Support additional homeless assistance and homeless prevention activities to mitigate the impacts created by coronavirus
Eligible activities under ESG-CV funding include engaging individuals and families experiencing homelessness; improving the quality of emergency shelters for individuals and families experiencing homelessness by helping to operate these shelters, and providing essential services to shelter residents; rapidly re-housing individuals and families experiencing homelessness; and preventing families and individuals from becoming homeless. 
 
Staff recommends acceptance of the additional ESG-CV funding under the CARES Act for ongoing COVID-19 prevention, preparation, and response.
