Board of Supervisors

Preview

Agenda Item #14: The Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency (CDA) to accept an award of $7,695,346.50 of Emergency Rental Assistance from the U.S. Treasury Department and authorize staff to consider the allocation and the process for distribution. The money comes from the Consolidated Appropriations Act, passed by Congress in December 2020, as coronavirus relief. The stimulus funding will be directed toward current and past rent for tenants who have experienced economic hardship directly related to COVID-19. Staff plans to return to the Board with recommendations of allocations at a future date.

The Board accepted the award.
