DED accepting applications for second round of 2018 Community Development Block Grants

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.The Missouri Department of Economic Development announced that it will be accepting a second round of 2018 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)  applications in funding categories including General Infrastructure, Community Facilities, and Demolition.

Applications are due to the CDBG office by close of business on October 1, 2018. To find the applications and its guidelines, visit https://ded.mo.gov/content/community-development-block-grants.

In addition, the Missouri CDBG program will hold an application training session on August 14, 2018. The workshops are free and open to the public, and no registration is necessary. Here, participants will learn how to complete the FY2018 CDBG application for non-entitlement areas of the state (cities of less than 50,000 and counties of less than 200,000 in population). 

Participants will learn the basic application requirements, along with more specific information geared toward each category of funding.  Applications will be available at each workshop and on DED’s website. 

As part of DED, CDBG assists Missouri communities with improving local facilities, addresses critical health and safety concerns, and creates a greater capacity for development. For more information, please contact us at 573-751-3600.
