The City of Hillsboro will receive $439,454 in CDBG-CV funds to be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the spread of COVID-19 through the federal Coronavrius Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). 

The City will use the funds to provide rent, utility, and food assistance to community members in need.

The CDBG-CV funds were allocated to cities by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
