04/02/2018: "Proposals Wanted For Community Development Block Grants"
San Juan County seeks a statement of interest from any community organization who is interested in applying for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) General Purpose Grant. CDBG General Purpose Grants are made available annually through a competitive application process.
The grants are intended to assist Washington State small cities, towns and counties in carrying out community and economic development projects that principally benefit low- and moderate-income persons.
The purpose of the state CDBG Program is to improve the economic, social and physical environment of eligible, non-entitlement cities and counties to enhance the quality of life for low- and moderate-income residents, and as a result, benefit the entire community. Examples of eligible General Purpose Grant activities include:
• Public facilities such as water, wastewater and streets
• Community facilities, such as community centers, fire stations, homeless shelters and child care facilities
• Economic development, such as micro-enterprise assistance and public infrastructure
• Affordable housing and housing rehabilitation
For more information visit the Community Development Block Grantswebpage.
Check to see if your project may be eligible for this funding.
Community organizations interested in applying should send a statement of interest and a short description of the project(s) to San Juan County Health & Community Services at the address below by April 11, 2018.
