Stimulus Action Plan –Amendment March 8, 2012

As Community Development Block Grant Stimulus (CDBG-R) projects were completed, some CDBG-R Recipients de-obligated funds due to lower than expected costs. On November 5, 2010, DCA contacted all CDBG-R Recipients to determine if there was any need for additional funding and to request local grant amendments if such a need existed. Through that amendment process, the Department was able to obligate all CDBG-R funds with the exception of a de minimis amount of funds less than $50,000. This Action Plan amendment allows the Department to allocate these remaining funds to existing CDBG-R Recipients that responded to the Department’s November 5, 2010 request for local grant amendments.

This is not a substantial amendment to the CDBG-R Action Plan because it is less than the 25% threshold established for substantial amendments in the DCA CDBG Citizen Participation Plan. For Action Plan amendments that are not substantial amendments, no public comment period is required. The Citizen Participation Plan can be found here:

CDBG-R Action Plan Amendment March 8 2012

Stimulus Action Plan Amendment

DCA has published a Stimulus Action Plan Amendment below in order to assist the State of Georgia in expediting the expenditure of CDBG-R funds. Because deobligations of grant funds sometimes occurs due to cost underruns or other reasons and because CDBG-R funds cannot be reused as part of the State’s normal CDBG program, the Amendment allows the State the ability to reallocate CDBG-R funds within the CDBG-R program if deobligations occur. The public comment period for these changes will run through 5 PM on June 1, 2010. Those wishing to comment on the Action Plan Amendment may provide comments by email to Steed Robinson at steed.robinson@dca.ga.gov or by regular mail at: ATTN: Steed Robinson, Georgia Department of Community Affairs, 60 Executive Park South, Atlanta, Georgia 30329.
