The application period for 2023 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Public Services funding opened at 8:00 AM on Monday, July 25th, and closes at 2:00 PM on Friday, September 2nd. This funding is available to not-for-profits, 501(c)3 organizations, and government agencies to provide services to low and moderate-income persons. Each organization will be limited to one application with a maximum award of $30,000.

 

The city of Peoria receives CDBG funding each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Up to 15% of their annual funding amount can be used towards public service programs that serve 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.
