Read the full Notice of Funding Availability
Johnson County will receive a special allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). This allocation was authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Public Law 116-136 signed into law by President Trump on March 27, 2020 in response to the growing effects of this historic public health crisis. The CARES Act will provide $942,070 in Community Development Block Grant Coronovirus (CDBG-CV3) funding to Johnson County through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This funding opportunity excludes the cities of Overland Park, Lenexa and Shawnee who will receive their own allocation of funding from the CARES Act as entitlement communities. The City of Olathe is a member of the Urban County and will receive a percentage of the Johnson County CARES Act allocation and utilize the County application materials.
