CDBG Planning Grants

The objectives of a planning grant, or, feasibility study grant, are to determine whether or not a proposed CDBG project is feasible and/or to recommend specific action(s) to be undertaken and that at least 51% of the intended beneficiaries will be of low or moderate income. Eligible activities include income surveys, preliminary architectural and engineering design, cost estimates, and market analysis. Applications are accepted on the last business day, Monday through Friday, of April and October each year.

The maximum amount awarded to a municipality for a planning grant is $12,000 (this total is not counted against CDBG awards in other catagories).

To apply for funds, interested persons should review the CDBG Program Rules, Rules/Appendices, Application and Recent Awards to help you decide the best route to take in preparing your application.
