The County uses a two-step application process:
- Step 1 - Submit eligibility information via the LOI feature in the Dutchess County Grant Portal. After signing into the portal, click the blue APPLY button in the upper right to start the process. Applicants must complete this process by Friday, November 18, 2022, so the County has time to review and approve eligibility. Applicants will only be able to proceed to the application once the LOI has been approved by the County.
- Step 2 – You will be able to complete the application via the EDIT APPLICATION link which will appear once the LOI is approved by the County. The application and attachments must be submitted via the grant portal by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, December 9, 2022

Staff is available to provide technical assistance during the application process.

Municipalities must hold a public hearing to solicit project ideas prior to submitting the application. Applications submitted without a public hearing are ineligible and will be rejected. For joint applications, each municipality must hold a public hearing and pass a resolution. A copy of the public notice and authorizing resolution must be submitted with the application.

A qualifying applicant can submit one (1) application, except that a second application may be submitted for an eligible housing activity.
Housing activities require a separate application.
