Press Release

Raleigh, NC (September 11, 2020) – Today, Chairman David Price (NC-04) announced that communities in the Fourth Congressional District and the State of North Carolina will receive additional Community Development Block Grant (CBDG) funds totaling $46 million from the CARES Act through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In his capacity as Chairman of the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (T-HUD) Subcommittee, Representative Price helped secure this funding.  

“Unemployment rates remain stubbornly high and COVID-19 is still endangering our communities. Many families in North Carolina are struggling to pay rent while small businesses have been forced to adapt to stay viable,” said Chairman David Price. “These flexible CARES Act CDBG resources will help our communities and our state respond to the pandemic and can be used for a variety of purposes, including rental assistance, small business support, and public facility improvements. As T-HUD Chairman, I’ll continue pressing for additional resources to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 especially for vulnerable communities that need it most.”

This funding was appropriated in the CARES Act and is the third and final installment totaling nearly $2 billion in supplemental CDBG funds to states and localities.  As directed by Congress, communities with high rates of job loss as well as communities with households most at risk for COVID-19 transmission and eviction received a larger share of the funds.
