Salt Lake County Community Resources and Development (CRD) is providing proposal materials to Nonprofit Agencies, Community Organizations, Faith-based Organizations, and County Agencies for the: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Housing, Public Facility Improvements (Hard Costs), and Economic Development Funding; Social Service Programs including the Soft Costs for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and the Social Services Block Grant Funding (SSBG).

The deadlines for submission of proposals for each program are as follows: Housing Services, Public Facility Improvements (Hard Cost), Economic Development Proposals are due Thursday, December 5, 2013, at 2:00 PM; Social Services (Soft Cost) Combined Proposals is due Thursday, December 12, 2013, at 2:00 pm; and the HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) Proposals is due Thursday, December 19, 2013, 2:00 pm.

These are competitive proposal processes. All proposals will be reviewed by Citizen Review Panels for CDBG and Social Services and the Salt Lake County Consortium Board for HOME funds, who will prioritize and make funding recommendations to the County Mayor (or the Mayors and City Councils for the participating cities for CDBG Housing, Hard Costs and Economic Development) who will ultimately decide which proposals are funded and at what funding level. These funds should be available beginning July 1, 2013, subject to HUD’s approval of Salt Lake County’s 2014-15 Action Plan and Congress passing a budget for 2014.

The proposals, guidelines and instructions will be available on the County’s website at http://www.crd.slco.org/communityDev/PublicNoticesComment.html on the dates listed above.
