The California Department of Housing and Community Development (Department) has received funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the amount of approximately $42 million in federal funds for the Emergency Solutions Grants Program (ESG). The additional funds are referred to as the ESG-Coronavirus (ESG-CV) funds. Imperial County’s estimated allocation is $1,028,100 of which $54,100 is available for administrative costs.
