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