The City of Chico is seeking public comment on a proposed Substantial Amendment to the City’s 2019‐2020 Annual Action Plan for the use of federal funds from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Amendment proposes uses of Community Development Block Grant ‐ Coronavirus (CDBG‐CV) program funds that the City received pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES Act). The City was allocated $1,160,430 and completed a previous substantial amendment allocating $127,000
to five public service agencies to assist with their response to the pandemic. The proposed 2nd Substantial Amendment allocates $282,933 for public services funding to Chico Housing Action Team to provide transitional shelter to homeless individuals and families who are susceptible to contracting COVID‐19 through their master lease program. The proposed amendment also allocates the allowable set‐aside (up to 20% of the total allocation) for Program Administration, $167,285.

A copy of the Substantial Amendment will be available beginning May 26, 2021 at:‐planning‐documents. Due to COVID‐19, the City will not have copies of these Amendments available at public locations. If you need a physical copy of the proposed Substantial Amendments, please email
