HUD’s Office of Special Needs Programs (SNAPS) sent a message to jurisdictions receiving Emergency Solutions Grant-Coronavirus (ESG-CV) supplemental funds provided by the “CARES Act.” The message explains that due to ongoing difficulties resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, SNAPS will not recapture unexpended funds if a recipient jurisdiction has not spent at least 80% of its total ESG-CV award by March 31, 2022. SNAPS is also considering whether it is necessary to establish a new 100% ESG-CV expenditure deadline later than September 30, 2022, the deadline set in Notice CPD-21-08 (see Memo, 7/26/2021).
Notice CPD-21-08 stated that SNAPS may recapture up to 20% of a jurisdiction’s total ESG-CV award if less than 20% was spent by September 30, 2021, and up to 80% if less than 80% was spent by March 31, 2022. The notice also required that jurisdictions expend their entire ESG-CV grants by September 30, 2022.
