The Using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Emergency Payments for Rental Assistance in Coronavirus Responses Quick Guide is now available on the HUD Exchange. The user-friendly Guide helps grantees design and implement a comprehensive emergency rental assistance program that may include the use of CDBG emergency payment activities, in assisting individuals and families at risk of homelessness as a result of the economic impacts of COVID-19.
This resource includes topics such as how to:
- Identify and prioritize community needs and inventory available resources
- Match needs with funding sources
- Comply with CDBG and CDBG CARES Act (CDBG-CV) regulations and waivers
- Apply Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) requirements
The Quick Guide also addresses important program design and delivery factors to help grantees identify community partners, market their rental assistance program, document beneficiaries, and report on their progress in Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS).
