Organizations encouraged to apply for General Fund and CDBG/HOME grant funds

The City of Chandler’s Neighborhood Resources Division will host a grant orientation session for organizations interested in receiving FY 17/18 Human Services General Fund and Community Development Block Grants (CDBG)/Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funding. The session will be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, in the City Council Chambers, 88 E. Chicago St. 

Each year, the City’s Neighborhood Resources Division partners with other City departments and outside agencies to provide residents and neighborhoods with assistance to help stabilize the community and individual homes, and assist families. Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds, combined with ongoing support from the City’s General fund provide for a variety of programs that enhance neighborhoods. 

Applications for all funding will be available beginning Wednesday, Oct. 19, and are due by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22. Organizations applying for General Fund grant proposals will no longer be required to submit a letter of intent or submit an application through the e-CImpact system. 

New agencies that have never received funding from the City of Chandler Human Services Allocations Process, or have not received funding in the past three years are required to attend a grant orientation session. This New Agency session is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, in the City Council Chambers. During this session, City staff will hold a more in-depth review than the morning session.

Organizations may RSVP for the orientation by Wednesday, Oct. 12, to Rosalinda Berrelleza at rosalinda.berrelleza@chandleraz.gov. For questions related to CDBG/HOME funding, organizations may call Barbara Bellamy at 480-782-4353, and for questions related to funding from the General Fund, call Leah Powell at 480-782-4352.
