For FY 2016, CDBG funding recommendations will be based on a two-phase application process: Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and Request for Proposals (RFP). All FY 2016 CDBG applicants must successfully complete both phases in order to be considered for FY 2016 CDBG funding. Applicants must successfully complete the RFQ process in order to be invited to participate in the RFP process. The RFQ process will result in an agency being deemed either qualified or unqualified to participate in the upcoming RFP process.
