grant money 300 x 300KENTUCKY (3/13/18) — The Department for Local Government announces over $22 Million in funding opportunities for 2018 through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant Program.  The CDBG program provides funds for public facilities, economic development, housing, public services, and community projects.

“The 2018 CDBG funding cycle provides an excellent opportunity for communities and leaders looking to improve public services, revitalize neighborhoods, provide critical infrastructure, or expand local businesses,” said DLG Commissioner Sandra Dunahoo. “Since 2016, there have been numerous success stories from these funding opportunities. For example, just $5.1 million in CDBG funds for economic development led to over $62.5 million of additional investment in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”

All cities and counties are eligible to apply through DLG with the exception of Ashland, Bowling Green, Covington, Elizabethtown, Henderson, Hopkinsville, Lexington-Fayette County, Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government, and Owensboro.  These communities receive CDBG funds directly from HUD.

CDBG funds are federal funds allocated by HUD and must comply with federal regulations.  Project funds are determined based upon project needs, reasonable costs, and overall effectiveness.

Applications for 2018 CDBG funds are submitted to DLG. All guidelines and eligible activities are available online. To learn more, visit https://kydlgweb.ky.gov/FederalGrants/CDBG_cities.cfm.
