Joyce Announces $4.6 Million in Community Development Block Grants for OH-14

Sep 09, 2020

WASHINGTON – This week, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) announced that localities across OH-14 were awarded $4,669,885 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. Cuyahoga County received $2,735,278, Lake County received $720,275, Summit County received $1,016,931, and Mentor received $197,401. Provided by the CARES Act and administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), this funding is to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic with a targeted focus toward places with households facing higher risk of eviction.

“The Community Development Block Grant program is one of the most effective tools we have to help grow local economies and improve the lives of millions of Ohioans,” said Joyce. “I was proud to vote to provide this critical program with additional funding to help our communities overcome the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and look forward to seeing it support small businesses and their workers, critical homeownership initiatives and much-needed economic development projects.” 

In total, the CARES Act provided $5 billion in supplemental CDBG funding, of which Ohio has received $42,105,991. HUD previously announced $3 billion in CARES Act funding for CDBG grantees, including $1 billion which was allocated specifically to state and insular area governments. Back in May, Lake County announced that it had committed $700,000 of the supplemental CDBG funding it had received to create two relief programs for small businesses impacted by the pandemic: the Lake County Microenterprise Emergency Relief Grant Program and the Lake County Emergency Working Capital Loan Program.Learn more here.
