CDBG Funding Targets Low- and Moderate-Income Housing Providers

Rockville’s Department of Community Planning and Development’s Housing Division will hold a housing providers forum on applying for Community Development Block Grant funding, 9-11:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 10, in the Mayor and Council chambers at City Hall.

The forum will share information on how affordable housing providers can receive CDBG money to pay for repairs to their affordable housing stock. RSVP to attend at bit.ly/housingforum2018.

Rockville is accepting applications for an anticipated $263,000 in federal CDBG funds it will receive in fall 2019. CDBG money can be used to provide 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.
