The Community Development Block Grant Economic Development program is accepting applications for job creation and employee training awards on a rolling basis until Dec. 18, 2019. The program typically operates on an open-application cycle, however this Dec. 18 deadline is to ensure federal dollars are obligated before the start of the new year (when they would need to be transferred out of the CDBG ED pool, if not obligated). Please click here to apply.
For applicants who are not able to submit by Dec. 18, the next round of federal dollars will be available through the typical open-application cycle beginning immediately after Dec. 18.
Program funds support businesses with grants to local governments and low-interest loans for projects creating or retaining jobs or providing job training opportunities. For more information, please contact program staff at 841-2770.
