Community Development Block Grant Project Proposal Deadline Friday, October 9

September 28, 2020 – FYI

Do you have a project that will benefit low-income individuals making less than $50,000 a year or families (depending on size) making less than $57,000 to $97,000 a year?

Do you have an idea for a project that will help victims of domestic violence, severely disabled adults, the elderly, or neighbors experiencing homelessness?

If you do, the City and Borough of Juneau, Community Development Department would like to hear from you.

The City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) is looking for a non-profit agency to partner with on an application for grant funds through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development (DCCED) administers these funds, which can be as much as $850,000 per project.  After CBJ selects a partner, together we will enter a statewide grant competition. The DCCED will ultimately disburse grant funds to applications that rank the highest.

Please contact Laurel Christian at the Community Development Department, by phone at 586-0761 or by email at laurel.christian@juneau.org, to discuss what information is needed with a project proposal.

Submit proposals by October 9, 2020, no later than 4:00 PM.
