Grants to Virginia nonprofit organizations for programs that improve economic and housing conditions for low- to moderate-income Arlington County residents. Funding may be provided for public services, such as senior and youth programs, job training, and neighborhood programs, or for housing development, homeownership, housing rehabilitation, certain economic development programs, and business development.
Successful projects will be responsive to the goals and objectives of the Five Year 2016-2021 Consolidated Plan. The most current funding priorities are outlined in the FY 2016-2021 Consolidated Plan. It is highly recommended that proposed projects address one or more of these objectives.
The Community Development Fund is a pool of funding comprised of a combination of federal, state, and local sources:
- Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
- Federal and State Community Services Block Grant (CSBG)
- Community Services Block Grant – Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (CSBG-TANF)
- Arlington County’s Affordable Housing Investment Fund, Housing Services (AHIF Services):
While CDBG and CSBG funds make up the majority of funding available under the Community Development Fund, there is the possibility that County staff will, at its sole discretion, consider certain projects that meet specific eligibility criteria for the following funding sources:
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Funding Eligibility: Applications that involve economic development activities serving families with children may be considered for CSBG-TANF funding.
- AHIF Housing Services Funding: Applications that involve housing-related services may be considered for funding within the AHIF Housing Services funding pool
GrantWatch ID#: 175186
Grants between $20,000 and $50,000 may be requested for public services that serve low and moderate income residents, such as neighborhood, job training, youth or senior programs.
Housing development, homeownership, housing rehabilitation, certain economic development programs, and business development (microenterprise, small business assistance) are eligible for grants up to $100,000.
Grants will be awarded for one year, beginning July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.
AHIF projects are funded for two (2) years at a time, after which the project is no longer eligible to receive AHIF Housing Services funds. However, grantees may reapply through the Community Development Fund to be considered for CSBG or CDBG funding, of which there is no length of time restriction.
