DeKalb, IL – Mayor Cohen Barnes has announced that applications for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Public Services Program are now available to agencies for the 2024 Program Year. CDBG is federal community development assistance funding provided to the City by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Applications for 2024 Public Services funding can be obtained on the City’s website under the Community Development Department on the Community Services page. Completed funding requests are due by 5:00 PM on November 29, 2023.
CDBG funded public services programs administered by the Community Development Department are for new public services or for a documented increase in the level of existing public services provided to target resident populations. Organizations applying for CDBG funds must serve City residents whose household income is less than 80% of the area median income and must obtain documentation of household income for all program participants or verify that they will provide services in a limited geographic area where more than 51% of the total population is low- to moderate-income. All projects are required to meet at least one Consolidated Plan Objective and one HUD National Objective. A list of the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan objectives and HUD national objectives are included in the application materials on the City’s website.
For more information on CDBG, contact the Community Services Coordinator, Jennifer Yochem at 815-748-2366 or via email at Jenifer.Yochem@cityofdekalb.com.
