2016 Community Development Block Grant Program Request for Proposals (RFP) Annual Action Plan Pubic Hearing
The City of Ashland is presently accepting proposals for Activities and Projects, which benefit low and moderate-income people. Applicants must be a non-profit 501(C) (3) charitable organization or a unit of government. The City of Ashland will award approximately $184,150 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to selected, eligible projects. This is the twenty-first year that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is expected to award CDBG funds to the City of Ashland. The primary purpose of the CDBG Program is to fund community development projects and programs, which benefit low and moderate-income people. To utilize CDBG funds most effectively to address Ashland’s highest priority needs, the City has limited the award of CDBG funds to fewer than four projects annually that provide or maintain housing to extremely low, low-moderate income, and special needs households, or provide social services activities addressing the Homeless or Special Needs Goals outlined in the City’s Consolidated Plan. As of January 1, 2016 the RFP shall be available on the City of Ashland web page,www.ashland.or.us/CDBG2016RFP. Within the “Affordable Housing Documents” section of the website. Printed copies of the RFP are available at the Community Development and Engineering Services building at 51 Winburn Way. Responses to the RFP must be received by 4:30 pm on Friday, February 19, 2016.
