WEST HAVEN, Sept. 22, 2020 — The West Haven Community Development Administration has received $401,929 in Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to prevent, prepare for and respond to COVID-19, CDA Manager Mark J. Bisaccia announced.

The aid is part of the third round of the coronavirus rescue package in response to the growing effects of the public health crisis.

Using the federal money, CDA will prioritize the needs of low-to-moderate-income residents and the development of partnerships between all levels of government and the private for-profit and nonprofit sectors, Bisaccia said.

Those who qualify for CDBG-CV grants must coordinate with state and local health authorities before undertaking activities to support local pandemic response.

The emergency grants are subject to oversight, reporting and the requirement that grantees have adequate procedures to prevent the duplication of benefits, Bisaccia said.

CDA is in the process of sending out grant applications to its social services and governmental agencies. For an application, contact Bisaccia at markb@westhaven-ct.gov or 203-937-3550.

Applications will be reviewed by the West Haven CDBG Citizen Participation Committee for funding recommendations.

Applications are due Thursday, Oct. 22, to the City of West Haven, Community Development Administration, 355 Main St., West Haven, CT 06516. Applications can also be inserted into the drop box at the Main Street entrance of City Hall.
