What is the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) ARP PHASE ONE PRIORITY LIST program?
The Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Imminent Threat is funding provided under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (Public Law 117-2) (ARP Act), and other program requirements. These grants will be called “ICDBG-ARP” grants. The Act provides for up to $280,000,000 in ICDBG Imminent Threat (IT) funding to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, for emergencies that constitute imminent threats to health and safety. This funding will be provided in the form of grants to eligible Indian tribes and must be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This funding must be used in accordance with the applicable requirements of the ARP Act, Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, (42 U.S.C. 5103 et seq.), and the ICDBG implementing regulations at 24 CFR Part 1003. In addition, Congress authorized HUD to waive or specify alternative requirements for any statute or regulation (except for requirements related to fair housing, nondiscrimination, labor standards, and the environment) that HUD administers to expedite or facilitate the use of ICDBG-ARP grant funds to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. The ICDBG Program provides eligible grantees with direct grants for use in developing viable Indian and Alaska Native Communities, including decent housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities, primarily for low and moderate income persons. Projects funding by the ICDBG program must principally benefit low-and-moderate-income persons (24 CFR 1003.208).
Due to the COVID-19 shelter in place and social distancing requirements, we are unable to hold a public meeting on this matter.
The Karuk Tribe intends to submit a funding proposal for ICDBG CARES funding on or near August 30th, 2021. A second notice will follow once the proposal is completed in order offer the public and opportunity to review the proposal and give an opportunity to allow comment of or input into the project.
