BACKGROUND: 

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 was signed into law to assist communities in their efforts to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the novel coronavirus COVID-19. The CARES Act allocated a total of $14,597,387 in Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV) to Clark County.

On July 7, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners approved the submittal of the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Action Plan for Housing and Community Development to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which HUD subsequently approved.

On December 1, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners approved the submittal of a Substantial Amendment to the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Action Plan for Clark County to receive and administer the $14,597,387 in CARES Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV) funding from HUD, including ESG Round 1 (ESG-CV1) of $2,333,003 and ESG Round 2 (ESG-CV2) of $12,264,384.

On May 04, 2021, the Board of County Commissioners approved the submittal of the First Substantial Amendment to the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 Action Plan for Clark County to reprogram $2,074,703 ESG-CV funds for Rapid Rehousing activities in response to COVID-19.

On January 18, 2022, the Board of County Commission approved the Second Amendment of the Clark County Substantial Amendment to the 2020 Action Plan to revise the ESG-CV spending plan to reprogram $1,309,400 of Rapid Rehousing funds to Emergency Shelter activities in response to COVID-19 related housing needs including homeless households which are highly vulnerable to poor outcomes.

On March 01, 2022, the Board of County Commission approved the Third Amendment of the Clark County Substantial Amendment to the 2020 Action Plan to revise the ESG-CV spending plan to reprogram $2,084,395.25 of Rapid Rehousing funds to Emergency Shelter Non Congregate Shelter activities in response to COVID-19 related housing needs including homeless households which are highly vulnerable to poor outcomes, as well as $25,000.00 from rapid rehousing to HMIS to align with HUD activity categories.

On July 19th, the Board of County Commissioners approved the Fourth Amendment of the Clark County Substantial Amendment to the 2020 Action Plan to revise the ESG-CV spending plan to reprogram a total of $3,407,379.00 ESG-CV funds from Rapid Rehousing and Administrative funds to Emergency Shelter eligible activities in response to COVID-19 related housing needs including homeless households which are highly vulnerable to poor outcomes.

The purpose of the Fifth Amendment of the Clark County Substantial Amendment to the 2020 Action plan is to review the CDBG-CV spending plan to reprogram $3,646,254.97 of CDBG-CV funds from Homeless Services to Emergency Payments (Rents) and $433,349.00 of Public Services to Public Facilities (Fire Stations/Equipment) activities in response to Covid-19 related housing and health needs including homeless households which are highly vulnerable to poor outcomes.

The Fifth Amendment submitted to HUD for approval includes CDBG-CV funding as outlined.

The District Attorney's office has reviewed and approved this Substantial Amendment as to form.
