Title

Housing and Urban Development - Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery Drainage Infrastructure Improvements (B)

 

This item is a request for the City Commission to approve the submission and acceptance of a grant, if awarded, from HUD through the Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery.

 

Explanation

In March 2020, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) allocated an additional $100,229,945 in Infrastructure repair funding through the Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address unmet disaster recovery needs related to damage from Hurricane Irma.  Eighty percent of the allocation will be awarded to the most impacted and distressed counties with the remaining twenty percent of the allocation available to eligible counties that experienced storm damage.  The City is eligible to compete for the twenty percent allocation. 

 

The grant applications will address damage and infrastructure deficits in low and moderate income neighborhoods impacted by Hurricane Irma.  The Public Works Department will submit two applications under this program.  The first project is for the repair and stabilization of drainage infrastructure in Tumblin Creek near Depot Avenue and SW 6th Street.  The second project is will replace open ditch segments in the Duval neighborhood with storm sewer pipe.

 

Fiscal Note

The amount requested for the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery projects is $1,230,127.  No local match is required.

 

Recommendation

The City Commission authorizes the City Manager or designee to execute grant applications, grant awards and any other necessary documents, subject to approval by the City Attorney as to form and legality.
