HOME-ARP Funding Availability

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) is a federal economic stimulus bill passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law in March 2021. The American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) provided $5 billion to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). On April 8, 2021, HUD announced the HOME-ARP allocations for participating jurisdictions. The City of Chattanooga was awarded $2,966,210 in HOME-ARP funds as a non-entitlement allocation. This is an addition to our regular FY 2021 HOME formula allocation.

 

This fund is intended to provide additional homelessness assistance and supportive services through the following activities:

  • Development and support of affordable housing, as currently permitted under the HOME program;
  • Tenant-based rental assistance;
  • Supportive services, including activities such as transitional housing, housing counseling, and homelessness prevention services; and/or
  • Acquisition and development of non-congregate shelter units; which may be converted into permanent affordable housing, used as emergency shelter, or remain as non-congregate shelter units

Amendments to the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and FY 2019-2020 Action Plan for Funding in Response to COVID-19

In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) informed the City of Chattanooga that it will receive $938,930 and $1,448,742 as special allocations of Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funds from the first and third round of CDBG-CV allocations, respectively. The funds are to be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). These allocations were authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, which was signed by President Trump on March 27, 2020, to respond to the growing effects of this historic public health crisis.
In addition to the COVID-19 funding, the City may also use 2019 and 2020 CDBG funding in response to the pandemic. The City of Chattanooga’s 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan, 2019-2020 Action Plan, and Citizen Participation Plan had to be amended to enable the City to receive and administer the CDBG-CV funding, along with any other funding made available to the City through the CARES Act, and reprogrammed CDBG funds from FY 2019 and FY 2020 allocations totaling $600,000.
