The CARES Act appropriated a total of $4 billion in supplemental ESG funds (ESG-CV) nationwide.  HUD allocated the Nebraska Balance of State $8.5 million to be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19 among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance. Awardees can utilize ESG-CV dollars to support regulatory ESG activities, per 24 CFR 576, in addition to:

  • Temporary emergency shelters, until January 31, 2022
  • Staff training on infection disease prevention for COVID-19
  • Hazard pay for staff working in close proximity to persons with COVID-19 or in locations with high likelihood of contracting coronavirus
  • Handwashing stations and portable bathrooms for those living in unsheltered locations
  • Incentives for landlords
  • Incentives for volunteers

Agencies awarded ESG-CV funds agree to provide homeless assistance services, in direct response to COVID-19, by adhering to HUD and NHAP rules and regulations. Agencies awarded as Regional Leads are committing to provide ESG-CV dollars to other agencies in their region who request additional funding to further efforts in preventing, preparing for, and responding to COVID-19 among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance to mitigate the impacts created by COVID-19.

For additional details on ESG-CV funding, please see HUD's CPD 20-08 guidance mem​o.
