Applying for Grants
Economic Development CDBG applications are accepted on an open-cycle basis. To apply for any of the funding approved through the competitive ranking process, eligible applicants must submit an application containing the material required in the current CDBG-ED Application Guidelines.
Commerce staff will review CDBG-ED applications for technical and financial feasibility, the extent to which the proposed project relates to each of the ranking criteria, and conformance to federal and State CDBG requirements. Individual awards will be awarded in proportion to the number of jobs that will be created or retained. The actual number of awards will be subject to funding.
Successful applicants must comply with all applicable parts of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, 42 U.S.C. §5301, et seq.; the applicable Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations, including, but not limited to 24 CFR Part 570 and Form HUD-4010; all administrative directives and procedures established by the Department, including the most recent version of the Grant Administration Manual; and all other applicable local, state, and federal laws, regulations, administrative directives, procedures, ordinances, or resolutions. Projects must be completed in accordance with the applicable local, state, and federal laws.
