The Town of Barnstable Growth Management Department (GMD) is accepting applications for the 2017 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program year (estimated July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018). CDBG is a federally funded program from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide affordable housing, economic opportunities and a suitable living environment to low and moderate income residents.
Projects must address at least one of the goals of the 2015 – 2019 Five Year Consolidated Plan: creation or preservation of affordable housing units or economic opportunities; improvements to public facilities, infrastructure or other public improvements; or provision of services to low income and special needs populations including but not limited to homeless persons. Proposed projects that address the goals in the Downtown Hyannis Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) defined in the consolidated plan may be given preference.
Estimated available total funding is $274,347, plus any carry over funds and program income. This estimate is based on last year’s funding levels and will be adjusted when final amounts are known. The estimated amount available for Public Service activities is approximately $48,000.
To be considered, Letters of Interest must be received in the Growth Management Department by 4pm on March 23, 2017. Please follow the Letter of Interest Instructions on the Town website www.townofbarnstable.us/CDBG and refer to the CDBG Application Guidebook for more details on the process and eligibility requirements.
