Up to $144,000 of CDBG-CV funds will be provided to Southeastern Behavioral Health for operational costs of a transitional housing shelter to decompress the homeless shelter to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Southeastern Behavioral Health will use funding from the canceled second recovery shelter project. The canceled funding from the rent or mortgage payment project will be offset by reducing the estimated 2020 CDBG program income.
