The Spokane County Community Services, Housing, and Community Development Department (CSHCD) is seeking proposals for the 2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program year. CSHCD will review applications and make recommendations to the Housing and Community Development Advisory Committee (HCDAC). The HCDAC holds a public hearing for the purpose of making a recommendation to the Spokane County Board of Commissioners (BoCC). The BoCC makes the final decision during a public meeting. Emphasis will be placed on county beneficiaries who would be served with these funds.
Proposals must address a priority need for public services, public facilities, infrastructure, economic development, and planning actions (as contained in the 2019 CDBG Funding Policies, project selection criteria, and RFP.) The 2019 CDBG RFP contains instructions, a timeline for the allocation process, the amount of anticipated funds available, and other pertinent information from the Amended 2015-2019 Spokane County Consolidated Plan, such as priority needs and goals.
Eligible applicants include local governments, non-profit agencies with 501(c) (3) designation, public housing authorities, and for-profit entities. Applicants must demonstrate the capacity to carry out their proposal and manage federal funds.
