The City of Durham expects to receive a total of $2,716,217 in CDBG-CV, $2,662,668 in ESG-CV, and $70,340 in HOPWA-CV funding. This second substantial amendment includes proposed uses for the remaining funding of $1,513,616 in CDBG-CV and $2,060,285 in ESGCV funds. These remaining funds are part of the second amendment to the plan.
