The Salt Lake County Division of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is releasing the RFA for the CDBG Hard Cost Programs on or about Wednesday, October 18th, 2023. This opportunity is specific to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding through the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development. CDBG hard cost activities include land acquisition, housing rehab, homeownership assistance, economic development, and public facility improvements.
Salt Lake County will NOT be accepting applications for new projects for Community & Support Services grants for Program Year 2024-2025. The Community & Support Services grants include the portion of CDBG funds that are utilized for public services, and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funding through the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, in addition to the Social Service Block Grant (SSBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) which are passed through the State of Utah. Program year 2024 will be a renewal year for current Community & Support Services grant subrecipients; therefore, agencies that were awarded funds for activities in program year 2023 are eligible to submit applications to be considered for a second year of continued funding.
An In-Person Training and Q & A Session has been scheduled for these programs.
A recorded copy of the presentations will be available on ZoomGrants and on the County Website within 72 hours of the live training.
