The city of Santa Clarita is pleased to announce that informational meetings have been scheduled for those organizations interested in applying for 2023-24 Community Development Block Grant funding. Nonprofit organizations that serve lower-income residents of the City are invited to attend an informational meeting to learn more and receive an application for funding.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides the City with CDBG funding, which is primarily intended to benefit lower income residents. A portion of this allocation is awarded through grants to eligible non-profit organizations to provide services and resources. Individuals and non-profit organizations are not eligible to apply for CDBG funding.
Three informational Zoom meetings have been scheduled to give interested non-profit organizations information on the process for applying for and receiving CDBG funding. Meetings will be held on the following dates:
Tuesday, Dec. 13, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Thursday, Dec. 15, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Monday, Dec. 19, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Participation in one of the three Zoom meetings is required in order to receive a funding application.
Every five years, the City develops a CDBG strategic planning document called the Consolidated Plan. The Con Plan sets priorities for how CDBG funds will be used. In addition, each year the City conducts a community needs assessment and develops a CDBG Annual Action Plan, which outlines the way in which the annual allocation of CDBG funds are spent and establishes goals for the number of individuals served.
This Notice of Funding Availability allows community-based organizations the opportunity to apply for funds to serve the low- and moderate-income residents as part of the AAP during the program year of July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024. All proposals must address a Con Plan priority and meet a variety of other cross-cutting federal regulations, including compliance with reporting and record-keeping requirements. Only residents of the City of Santa Clarita may be served by any CDBG funding awarded.
Funding application forms will only be distributed to those who attend one of the three informational meetings.
