The City is an entitlement community and anticipates receiving approximately $375,000 per fiscal year in CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The city also anticipates receiving approximately $105,000 in program income per fiscal year which will be available for allocation to CDBG activities. This Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) covers a two-year period for CDBG activities that will begin July 1, 2022, and end June 30, 2024.
For public service grants, the City of Seaside may determine minimums and/or maximums for funding requests for more efficient allocation of funds. Applicant agencies should consider minimum grant thresholds of $5,000 and maximum thresholds of $12,000 per program or project per fiscal year. Due to funding constraints and emerging needs of the community, the City of Seaside reserves the right to modify proposed budgets and/or scopes of work to better target the City’s identified priorities. Advance notification and consultation concerning such modifications will be provided to the applicant if the application is approved.
The CDBG program provides grants and loans to implement a variety of community and economic development activities. The purpose of the program is to provide decent housing and a suitable living environment for low- to moderate-income individuals and families. All projects are required to meet at least one of the following national objectives:
- Primarily benefit low- or moderate-income persons or households
- Aid in the elimination of slum or blight conditions
- Meet an urgent community need
All projects must create a public benefit and serve one of the City of Seaside’s Consolidated Plan goals:
- Access to community services (youth and senior services are priority services)
- Provide quality infrastructure (includes construct/upgrade public facilities)
- Improve accessibility for persons with disabilities
- Promote beautification (CDAC preferred not to use the term “blight”)
- Assist microbusinesses
Eligible activities under CDBG federal standards include community development, public and social services, economic development, and housing activities. However, the City of Seaside primarily funds public services and community development activities through this application. Eligible activities include:
- Public Facilities and Improvements
- Public Services
- Economic Development
This NOFA is open to public or private non-profit organizations, City of Seaside departments, and educational institutions only. Faith-based organizations are allowed to compete for CDBG funds on the same basis as other non-profits; however, funds cannot be used to support worship, religious instruction or proselytization. Faith-based organizations that participate in the CDBG program shall not discriminate against a program beneficiary on the basis of religion or religious belief. Organizations are strongly discouraged from applying for funds unless they are ready to implement the activity proposed for funding.
