The City of Henderson is accepting Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and CDBG-CV (COVID-19) applications from qualified nonprofit partners between now and Nov. 19 at 3:00 p.m.
The CDBG Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and allocates money on a state and local level for distribution. The program works to expand economic opportunities, ensure decent housing and provide a suitable living environment for all citizens. All nonprofit applicants must offer programming and services which meet the general criteria outlined by HUD to improve on the desired outcomes.
The City has a total of roughly $443,000 in available CDBG funds and nearly $1.2 million available in CDBG-CV (COVID-19) funds for distribution and is currently requesting applications for both:
