Application process for federal grants starts Jan. 31

Applications for 2019 Program Year Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Emergency Solutions Grant programs will be available Jan. 31. Applications are due in March when the assessment process begins, with allocations typically announced in October. The federally funded but locally administered programs help support and nurture a wide range of programs and services for individuals and families that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development defines as low and moderate income. A rigorous application process managed by professional Village staff and the Community Development Citizens Advisory Commission determines how the money should be allocated.
