Grants to Illinois nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to support a broad range of housing and community development projects. Applicants are strongly encouraged to meet with program staff prior to applying. Emphasis is placed on projects benefitting low and moderate-income households. Projects must benefit Elgin residents.

Non-profit organizations may apply for CDBG funds to support new or expanded public service activities or to complete capital improvement projects that meet federal eligibility criteria. The city is especially interested in proposals that leverage other funding and increase agency capacity to serve the community. All CDBG-funded activities must benefit low- to moderate-income Elgin residents.

Eligible activities must benefit City of Elgin residents and address one of the City of Elgin’s Goals/Objectives, as further described in the City of Elgin CDBG Guidelines document. The City is accepting applications to address the following objectives:

  • Objective #2: Facility Development and Improvement
  • Objective #3: Homeless and Supportive Services

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

In order to be eligible, applicants must be non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations and must be in good standing with state and federal authorities.

Additionally, in order to meet federal reporting requirements, applicants must be registered with CCR & DUNS and must maintain valid tax exempt status.

Consideration will be given to whether applicant agencies and projects are located within the corporate limits of the City of Elgin.

Stand-alone requests for indirect costs will not be considered. Applicants who include indirect costs in their funding proposal must meet with Staff to discuss the cost-allocation plan that will be required as part of the application package. Indirect costs may relate to utilities, rent, mortgage payments, and other overhead costs. Federal regulations do not allow for CDBG funds to be used except as allocable to a CDBG activity. An application must clearly define the correlation between the CDBG activity and indirect project cost request. Unless the applicant clearly demonstrates the association, indirect costs will not be considered. If an applicant wishes to pursue indirect costs, it is required that they consult with Staff prior to doing so due to the regulatory requirements prior to requesting the funds.

Pre-proposal Conference:

The City will host an application workshop on Wednesday, December 15, 2021, at 10:00 am, via Zoom.
