Fiscal Year 2019 Request for Proposals (RFP)Reality Changers

The RFP for FY 2019, encompassing the following six categories, closed on Jan. 16, 2018:

  2. Small/Emerging Organization Public Services;
  3. Community & Economic Development;
  4. Nonprofit Capital Improvement Projects & Multi-Family Housing Rehabilitation;
  5. Single-Family Housing Rehabilitation; and

"Qualified" organizations interested in applying for CDBG funds for projects beginning implementation on July 1, 2018, or very soon thereafter, accessed the NOFA/RFP application and associated resources by visiting the ED Grants Portal. Only PDF icon organizations deemed "qualified" through the prior FY 2019 Request for Qualifications (RFQ) phase were allowed to submit project proposals. Responses to the NOFA/RFP had to be submitted via ED Grants by Jan. 16, 2018.

Eligible proposals are being evaluated and scored by the Consolidated Plan Advisory Board, which will ratify the same on Mar. 14, 2018. Note that scores and rankings will be presented to and approved by the City Council in April 2018, for inclusion in the City's FY 2019 Annual Action Plan.
