Riverside County – CDBG

  Grant Amount: Not specified

Information

The County of Riverside has opened the Online Application System for the FY 2023-2024 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) cycle. CDBG is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs.
The CDBG entitlement program allocates annual grants to larger cities and urban counties to develop viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and opportunities to expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.
To be eligible, a program must primarily benefit targeted groups. Targeted groups are lower income people in particular, but also include the elderly, handicapped adults, homeless, and victims of domestic abuse.
CDBG funding has been used by the County, its cooperating cities, and other subrecipients for a wide variety of community, economic, and social development activities. Activities include public facilities such as fire stations, parks, community centers, senior centers, homeless shelters, health clinics, water and sewer improvements, and street and sidewalk improvements. CDBG also provides public service activities such as childcare, health care, after school, programs, senior programs, food and clothing distribution, job training, recreation, and many more.
All activities funded with the County’s CDBG funds must:
1. serve persons or communities within the County’s Urban County area;
2. be an eligible activity under CDBG regulations (24 CFR Part 570.201); and
3. meet a National Objective of the CDBG program (24 CFR Part 570.208).
Most activities meet a National Objective by benefitting low-income persons or low-income communities.
In order to ensure the effective, efficient, and appropriate allocation and use of the County’s CDBG funding, the County may reject any proposed CDBG activity in an amount less than $10,000. Exceptions to this policy include traditionally “county-wide” activities which are funded from:
1. both a County Supervisor’s allocation and a cooperating city;
2. two or more cooperating cities; or
3. two or more County Supervisor allocations

Eligibility

The County of Riverside will only accept CDBG applications from the following organizations or entities:
1. Non-Profit organizations subject to 26 U.S.C. 501 (c)(3) of the tax code;
2. County of Riverside Agencies and Departments; and
3. Governmental agencies including Cities, Special Districts, and Tribes.
