The application period for 2022 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Public Services funding will open at 8:00 AM on Monday, July 26th and close at 3:00 PM on Friday, September 3rd. This funding is available to not-for-profits, 501(c)3 organizations, and government agencies to provide services to low- and moderate-income persons. Eligible applications will be reviewed by the CDBG Public Services Advisory Commission, and agencies will be notified of funding decisions following City Council approval.
The city of Peoria receives CDBG funding each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Up to 15% of the annual funding amount can be used to fund public service programs serving low- and moderate-income persons.
