This memorandum and attachments provide grantees and HUD field offices with initial technical assistance resources to support the use of $5 billion in Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus Response (CDBG-CV) funds. This document is the first in a series of resources HUD intends to make available to assist grantees in preventing Duplication of Benefits (DOB).
Based on HUD’s previous experiences launching large-scale programs in response to economic emergencies and major disasters, HUD anticipates that these DOB resources will assist grantees as they partner with nonprofits, public agencies, and other entities. When choosing which activities to carry out with CDBG-CV funds, grantees should consult with other entities working on coronavirus-related efforts to avoid DOB and to develop innovative solutions to this complex national emergency.
