CDBG Funding Applications

(updated 10/2/2017)

Fiscal Year 2019 Request for Qualifications (RFQ)Reality Changers Photo

The City of San Diego's Economic Development Department, Community Development Division, is accepting statements of qualifications from Oct. 2, 2017, through Nov. 3, 2017, from organizations interested in applying for CDBG funds for projects beginning implementation on July 1, 2018. The Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is the first phase of the CDBG funding application process. Organizations that do not submit their qualifications by the deadline, or are subsequently deemed "not qualified" through this RFQ process, will be precluded from submitting project proposals for Fiscal Year 2019 CDBG funding consideration.

All applicant organizations are required to submit their qualifications in response to one of two RFQs by completing an online application at the following site: http://edgrants.force.com

NEW!! Two Tracks: For FY2019, there are two RFQs to choose from (each one is tied to a specific Notice of Funding Availability or NOFA). Your organization must choose which appropriate track to follow ahead of time. Switching tracks will not be permitted once your organization has submitted an RFQ response:

  • Standard Track: For established organizations of any type; audited financial statements required
  • Capacity Building Track: For small/emerging nonprofit organizations only with $500,000 or less in annual revenue/income; 2016 tax return required in lieu of audited financial statements
