Requests for Funds

2018 CDBG Applications:

The deadline for final applications for 2018 Community Development Block Grant funds is January 16, 2018 at 4 pm.  Please come back for updates regarding applicants after the deadline. 


2017 CDBG Applications:

The following applications were received in response to a Notice of Funding Availability for 2017 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

Applications are separated into the Public Service and Development categories because federal law caps the amount of Community Development Block Grant funding that can be spent on Public Service projects at 15% of the City's total allocation.

The CDBG Advisory Board will review the non-CEDO applications during January, February and March 2017.  CEDO’s CDBG applications will be reviewed by the Administration during January and February.  All recommendations for funding will be forwarded to the Mayor and City Council, and a Public Hearing before City Council will be held in April/May 2017.

The 2017 applications are available for public review at the Community & Economic Development Office and below in PDF versions.
