Estimated Total Program Funding:


Estimated Size of Grant:

The minimum grant amount an applicant can request is $15,000.

Term of Contract:

CDBG funds must be expended within a 12-month period. Fiscal Year 2024 grants will fund projects from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Only non-profit organizations and government entities are eligible to apply. For-profit entities are not eligible for funding.

A nonprofit organization must have a 501(c)(3) designation from the U. S. Internal Revenue Service. People interested in undertaking new activities that have not yet formed a nonprofit organization may still apply. An organization that has applied for a nonprofit designation, but has not yet received the designation, must ensure that the designation will be in place before the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1, 2023).

Governmental and quasi-governmental agencies are encouraged to apply in partnership with a local nonprofit organization. The nonprofit organization should be, whenever practical, the primary applicant.

Public services (i.e., social services) activities will not be funded through CDBG. This means that administrative costs, such as labor, supplies, or other operating costs for a variety of social services programs are ineligible activities. Public services include, but are not limited to, those programs concerned with employment, crime prevention, childcare, health services, drug abuse programs, fair housing counseling, education, energy conservation, services for seniors, services for homeless persons, welfare services, or recreational services.
