The City of Gilroy is scheduled to release a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Housing Trust Fund (HTF) grant funding for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021-2022. In FY 2021-2022, the City expects to receive an estimated $500,000 in CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The primary objectives of the CDBG Program include activities that benefit low-income households, aid in the prevention of slums or blight, or meet an urgent community need. The City’s HTF program provides additional funding of $168,000 for the services related to housing and homelessness.
The City will award grants for a one-year period which will run from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.
The Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization Committee (HNRC) and the City Council will consider proposals to utilize these funds to implement activities in FY 2021-2022.
A public hearing to review the CDBG and HTF Grant Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) will be held virtually on January 7, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. All interested applicants are encouraged to attend by joining at Webex Link: https://cityofgilroy-trx.my.webex.com/cityofgilroy-trx.my/j.php?MTID=m0605430296641406647edf16f1d30ba2
