NEW! FY2019/2020 ICDBG- Notice of Area Allocations for FY2020 (May 21, 2020)
This Notice announces Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Area Allocations and other funding related information under the FY 2019/2020 ICDBG Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). The FY 2019/2020 ICDBG NOFA published on November 19, 2019, only announced AONAP FY 2019 allocations because the FY 2020 Appropriations Act was not enacted at the time the NOFA was published. This Notice also informs recipients that their implementation plans must show that the expenditure of both FY 2019 and FY 2020 funds will occur prior April 20, 2026, and that no extensions will be granted beyond that date.
This Notice also clarifies the applicability of Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act waivers and alternative requirements. Applicants that are awarded an ICDBG grant under the FY 2019/20 NOFA may benefit from these flexibilities when such funds are spent on activities to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, after an amendment request to HUD is approved.
The purpose of this Dear Lender Letter (DLL) is to inform lenders of the special loss mitigation options available to Section 184 and Section 184A borrowers under Section 4022 of the CARES Act, and the 120-day eviction moratorium that is currently in place pursuant to Section 4024 of the Act. This DLL also extends the foreclosure moratorium initially provided under the CARES Act until June 30, 2020 and extends loans processing flexibilities related to appraisals, verification of employment and IRS transcripts. Furthermore, this DLL supersedes PIH Notice 2015-15, Section 184 Indian Loan Guarantee Program Disaster Policy, for borrowers impacted by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) National Emergency.
