The RFP for the FY 2013-15 funding cycle reflects information from the Strategic Planning process conducted in the Spring of 2010 with the seven Community Development (CD) District Boards. The priorities established for each District through this Strategic Planning Process will be the categories to be funded through this RFP.
The categories for the FY2011-2013 CDBG RFP are as follows and are delineated in detail for each District in Attachment A:
- Housing Related Services
- Capital Improvement
Only proposals addressing the specific priorities of each District under these categories will be accepted and considered for funding.
In addition to the District programs, there will be $125,000 allocated annually for city-wide Fair Housing programs administered by providers that are a HUD Approved Counseling Agency for Fair Housing Assistance.
Additional details are provided in the Cover Letter.
