Notice is hereby given that the City of Costa Mesa anticipates receiving approximately $900,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for Fiscal Year 2018-2019.
The primary objective of the CDBG Program is “the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low- and moderate-income.”
The scope of CDBG-eligible activities established by HUD ranges from public works improvements to housing rehabilitation and social service programs that primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons.
Funding for social service programs is limited to 15% of the City’s total allocation for a given year. An estimated $135,000 may be available for public service grant funding. At this time, the City is accepting applications from interested, tax-exempt nonprofit organizations that provide CDBG-eligible services that benefit low- and moderate-income Costa Mesa residents.
Organizations that want to apply for funding for a particular program may view the application and related instructions on the City’s website – www.costamesaca.gov (follow the “City Hall/City Departments” links to Development Services – Housing and Community Development – Links).
The actual application can be obtained by contacting Mike Linares at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be available beginning December 18, 2017. Applications must be submitted to the City of Costa Mesa Housing and Community Development by 3 PM, Thursday, January 18, 2018. Late applications will not be accepted.
Questions regarding this notice should be directed to Mike Linares, CDBG/HOME Coordinator, at email@example.com.
