All CDBG activities, including those used for disaster response and recovery, must meet a national objective. While the primary objective of the program is to benefit low- and moderate-income persons, a grantee may be able to undertake activities under the slum/blight or urgent need national objectives to address disaster response and recovery needs. CDBG funds may also be used under the urgent need national objective to alleviate existing conditions which pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community. In the absence of substantial evidence to the contrary, under §570.208(c) and §570.483(d), the grantee must document that the existing conditions are of recent origin or which recently became urgent, that the grantee is unable to finance the activity on its own, and that other sources of funding are not available. A condition will generally be of recent origin if it developed or became critical within 18 months preceding the certification by the grantee.
Notice of Funding Opportunity
The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) hereby notifies interested Applicants of the availability of funds allocated from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The availability and use of these funds is subject to Federal CDBG regulations (24 CFR Part 570, Subpart I), and is further subject to the State CDBG policies and program requirements. DED is the administrator of the State of Missouri’s CDBG Program for Non-Entitlement Communities.
In releasing this Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), the goal of DED is to provide a funding gap to assist communities with remaining unmet needs for long term recovery for public infrastructure or facilities damaged or destroyed by a presidentially declared disaster event. In accordance with the Stafford Act, Duplication of Benefits will be screened. CDBG funds may not be supplanted for other available federal funding resources, however CDBG funds can be used as the non-federal match for FEMA Public Assistance projects.
