The City of Gilroy is releasing this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Housing Trust Fund (HTF) grant funding for Fiscal Years (FY) 2022-2023 & 2023-2024. The city expects to receive an estimated $500,000 in CDBG funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for each year. 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 proposes to provide additional funding up to $168,000 each fiscal year, for the services related to housing and homelessness. The City Council will be reviewing the HTF and providing direction on the future use of HTF funds, subsequent to this notice. There is the potential for a reduction or elimination of this funding source for public services, which if realized may happen in this cycle, or a later cycle. More will be known in late February.
The City will award grants for a two-year period which will run from July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2024.
The Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization Committee (HNRC) and the City Council will consider proposals to utilize these funds to implement activities in FY 2022-2023 & FY 2023-2024.
A public hearing to review the CDBG and HTF Grant Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) and grant application process will be held virtually on January 11, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. All interested applicants are encouraged to attend by joining at https://us06web.zoom.us/j/88668599144?pwd=QkVFYmZpMnk0eDMxcW1CT2FYemQvUT09
