The City of Glendale is soliciting proposals from public and community non-profit agencies for Public Social Service projects to be funded under its FY 2022-2023 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
Donor Name: City of Glendale
Type of Grant: Grant
Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 12/30/2021
Size of the Grant: $300,000
The CDBG program is funded by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Through this program, HUD provides a formula entitlement grant to the City to fund projects which aid in the development of viable urban communities and which meet one of two broad national objectives.
These objectives are:
- To benefit low- and moderate-income persons; or
- To aid in the prevention and elimination of slums and blighted areas.
The total estimated amount of funding available to community non-profit agencies for Public Social Service projects through the FY 2022-2023 CDBG Request for Proposal (RFP) process is $300,000.
If funded with CDBG allocation, an agency’s proposal/grant writing fees by a consultant are not covered by the funding. The agency may use the funds for direct services only.
In order to be eligible as a public social service, the following criteria must be met: 1) at least 60% of those persons benefiting from the service must be low- and moderate-income; 2) at least 60% of those persons benefiting from the service must be Glendale residents; and 3) for new programs, the activity must be a new service or a quantifiable increase in the level of an existing service. Public social services are direct services provided to community residents such as, but not limited to: employment, case management, crime prevention, child care, health, drug abuse, education, recreation, and counseling. CDBG funds are intended to be used to fund services or levels of service that are not currently provided by existing public agencies, organizations and/or City Departments with other funding sources.
