ACTION: Replacement Grant.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    CFDA#: 93.570.

    Legislative Authority: The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) 
Act of 1981, as amended by section 680 (a)(2) of the Community 
Opportunities, Accountability, and Training and Educational Services 
Act of 1998.
    Amount of Award: $663,263.00.
    Project Period: September 30, 2005 to September 29, 2008.

SUMMARY: The purpose of the Community Economic Development (CED) grants 
is to create new employment and business development opportunities for 
low-income individuals. The Office of Community Services (OCS) awarded 
a $663,263 CED grant (Grant No. 90EE0720) to Hall Neighborhood House in 
Bridgeport, Connecticut, on September 29, 2005. Prior to the 
expenditure of any of the grant funds, the grantee informed OCS in a 
letter dated April 17, 2006, that it wished to ``relinquish the 
management and operation of this program effective immediately.'' The 
letter stated the grantee's ``current financial instability'' as the 
reason for the action.
    In an attempt not to lose the benefits for the community that were 
intended through the CED grant, OCS identified a possible replacement 
recipient: Action for Bridgeport Community Development, Inc (ABCD). The 
organization is being considered as a replacement recipient for the 
following reasons:
     ABCD is a previously successful CED grantee (grant 
90EE0546).
     ABCD is headquartered approximately a mile and a half from 
the offices of Hall Neighborhood House (HNH) in Bridgeport, CT and will 
serve the same community. Also, ABCD and HNH have worked together in 
the past and reportedly have maintained a good working relationship.
     ABCD has a significantly sophisticated budget to manage 
this project effectively. (In 2003, the organization had gross receipts 
of approximately $20 million.).
     ABCD was recently selected by the Head Start Bureau to be 
the successor grantee of HNH's active Head Start grant.
     ACF Region I Administrator Hugh Galligan speaks highly of 
the performance of ABCD and has recommended that it be the replacement 
recipient.
    OCS has received and reviewed an application from ABCD. Upon 
finding that the proposed project is significantly similar to the one 
chosen for funding through HNH, OCS has requested that ABCD be approved 
as the permanent replacement recipient for Grant No. 90EE0720.
