All FY 2015 CDBG applicants must successfully complete both phases in order to be considered for FY 2015 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 eligible or ineligible to participate in the upcoming RFP process. Only "eligible" applicants will be invited to continue with the RFP process.

Agencies were only required to submit one (1) CDBG RFQ packet (as referenced in the FY 2015 CDBG RFQ Handbook).
