Non-entitlement units of local government are the only eligible recipients of Virginia CDBG funding, but these local governments may contract with Planning District Commissions, nonprofit organizations and other competent entities to undertake project activities.
There are four types of Planning Grants, which may or may not be used in preparation for a future CDBG competitive application submission:
- Downtown Revitalization
- Housing Rehabilitation
- Regional Projects (including Infrastructure)
Applications are accepted on an open, rolling basis from April 1st to December 31st, or until all the funding has been allocated for the program year, whichever one comes first. They must be submitted electronically through DHCD’s Centralized Application and Management System (CAMS) and are reviewed on a monthly schedule.
Please contact DHCD prior to the submission of any application.
