*Community Development Block Grant Funding Notification - City of Medford FY 2017/18
The City of Medford is announcing a housing and community development funding opportunity through the 2017/18 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. On average, the City receives an annual entitlement grant of approximately $600,000± from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to meet one or more of HUD’s National Objectives: 1) primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons; 2) eliminate or prevent slums or blight; or 3) meet a need having particular urgency. Funding is restricted to projects and/or programs proposed within the Medford city limits. HUD mandates the majority of CDBG funding be awarded to housing and community development projects with an allowable maximum of 15% of the annual entitlement funds available to public service activities, and 20% to program administration and fair housing activities. All proposed projects and programs must also meet one or more of the goals identified in the City’s 2015-19 Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development and be “eligible” as defined in HUD Regulations 24 CFR Part 570.201 through 570.206.
Interested agencies must attend one of two mandatory orientation meetings held on Monday, December 12, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. OR Friday, December 16, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Both meetings will be held at the Santo Community Center located at 701 N. Columbus Avenue in Medford, Oregon. Applications will be made available on December 16, 2016 and due by 5:00 p.m. on January 27, 2017. A funding recommendation will be announced on April 3, 2017, with final approval and adoption made by Medford City Council on May 4, 2017.
