CDBG-DR MHP Request for Proposals
Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR)
The City of Lakeport, in conjunction with the City of Clearlake, is submitting this notice to make housing developers aware of potential funding available through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and allocated to the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). HCD is the lead and Responsible Entity for administering the CDBG-DR funds allocated to the State of California. CDBG-DR supports the State of California’s unmet recovery needs related to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Major Disaster Declarations DR-4344 in October 2017, DR-4353 in December 2017, DR-4382 in July-September 2018 and DR-4407 in November 2018. In response to fires in Lake County in 2017 and 2018, HCD has allocated a combined total of $11,185,468 in DR-MHP funding to potentially be distributed through this RFP.
Housing is a priority for this funding, which is consistent with the results of a need assessment conducted by HCD. Based upon this identified need, HCD developed the Disaster Recovery Multifamily Housing Program (DR-MHP). DR-MHP Projects are funded to assist with meeting the unmet rental housing need, including the needs of individuals displaced from rental homes and individuals who became homeless as a result of the disasters. The DR-MHP will allow Subrecipients such as the Cities of Lakeport and Clearlake to identify, select, and submit potential Projects to HCD for eligibility assessment and review, approval, and funding. The Cities of Lakeport and Clearlake are jointly releasing the RFP consistent with the goal of providing for their local housing needs relative to the impact of these disasters. If successfully funded, the Cities of Lakeport and Clearlake will work with qualified Developers identified through this RFP to construct the Projects.
As required by HCD, the Cities of Lakeport and Clearlake have published this Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the City’s CDBG-DR MHP funds. The Request for Proposals, Application, Pro forma template, and Development team table are available on the Cities respective websites in a PDF format (www.cityoflakeport.com and www.clearlake.ca.us).
