Community Development Block Grant

About the grant

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federal Housing and Urban Development program that provides communities like Brooklyn Park with funding to address a wide range of activities benefiting low- to moderate-income households in the community.

Changes to the grant

Beginning 2018, CDBG funds for social services will be awarded through a combined Request for Proposals (RFP) coordinated by Hennepin County in partnership with Brooklyn Park and other participating suburban cities.

RFP applications materials will be published in early December 2017, with applications due in February 2018. 

Requirements to apply

  • Organizations must have 501(c) (3) status to apply
  • Activities must benefit low- to moderate-income households in Brooklyn Park

Application timeline and process

This is a general timeline. Exact dates may be different for the current year.

December 2017

The process begins in December with an advertisement by Hennepin County and the City of Brooklyn Park in the city’s main newspaper, SunPost. The advertisement simply informs the interested organizations providing social services in Brooklyn Park about the availability of CDBG funds.

February 2018

In early February 2018, all the interested social services organizations serving Brooklyn Park submit their applications to Hennepin County.
