Clarification on CDBG Application Eligibility (January 2019): Each eligible local government jurisdiction may apply once per application cycle for each of the categories of CDBG grants as long as the applicant does not have an open CDBG project that was awarded more than four (4) years ago. Community Facilities and Public Facilities are considered one grant funding category. The categories of CDBG grant are 1. Community and Public Facilities, 2. Affordable Housing Development, 3. Economic Development, and 4. Planning. If an applicant has an open CDBG project category, that has been awarded in the past four (4) years, that is not substantially complete, a new project application is ineligible. If an applicant has an open CDBG project in a CDBG project category, that has been awarded in the past four (4) years, that is substantially complete, a new project application is eligible.
