NORFOLK, VA – The City of Norfolk seeks applications from area nonprofits for grant funding to respond to COVID-19, as well as input from residents on how best to award those resources.
The deadline to apply for some of the $2,653,164 in CDBG-CV (CARES Act) funding is 4:30 p.m. on May 15. This money must be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus. Priority will be given to proposals that maintain household stability (e.g. food, rent or utility subsidies) or address health care, economic development, or other COVID‐19 related community needs.
For more information about this program and to apply, visit www.norfolk.gov/hudentitlement.
To help guide decisions on how to allocate these resources, the city has created a survey for residents to determine areas of highest need related to COVID-19 shutdowns and economic effects.
