CDBG Funding Deadline
Approaching

Federal Money is for Housing and Community Development

Applications from housing providers for Community Development Block Grant funding are due Monday, Oct. 9. A portion of $260,000 in federal money is anticipated to be available in Fiscal Year 2019 as grants to housing providers for housing and community development projects that benefit low- and moderate-income households or neighborhoods.

Applications will be reviewed and prioritized by city staff and forwarded, with recommendations, to the Mayor and Council for review and approval for submission to Montgomery County in late fall. Rockville receives CDBG funds through Montgomery County. Funding is anticipated in the fall of 2018.

Individual homeowners may apply for assistance online by visiting http://md-rockville.civicplus.com/DocumentCenter/View/17415. Applications are being accepted for this fall.
