Requests for Funds

Applications for 2019 funding will be posted after the application deadline January 14th.  See 2018 applications below. 


2018 CDBG Applications:

The following applications were received in response to a Notice of Funding Availability for 2018 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 2018.  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 2018.

The 2018 applications are available for public review at the Community & Economic Development Office and below in PDF versions.
