CDBG, HOME, General Funds and Scottsdale Cares Funding Information
The City of Scottsdale’s Community Assistance Office is soliciting applications for
FY 2014/2015 for the following funding sources: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and HOME funds, Scottsdale Cares, General Funds, and Endowment Funds. The City is requesting eligible proposals to assist population groups identified in the City’s Consolidated Plan for programs and services including but not limited to: education programs, job training, health services, transportation services, child care services, in-home senior services, transitional housing and affordable housing. The City will also focus on agencies’ ability to integrate, increase and maximize resources. These factors will be taken into consideration when determining which agencies will receive funding. Qualifying organizations must be either tax exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code or be City of Scottsdale programs.
Proposal applications will be available at an applicant orientation meeting at the Civic Center Library Auditorium (park on lower level), 9:00 a.m., Thursday, October 3, 2013. Attendance at the orientation meeting is strongly encouraged.
Please note that the deadline for submission of applications is 5:00 p.m. (MST), Friday, November 15, 2013.
CDBG and HOME:
These funds may be used to support housing activities and public services that improve the lives of low to moderate income people and people with special needs.
Proposals are requested for activities that promote the positive development of youth, adults and seniors, strengthen the capabilities of families and the self sufficiency of adults, or assist residents in addressing crisis needs.
Eligible categories are as follows:
- Brokerage Services (agencies providing services within City of Scottsdale Human Services facilities)
- Domestic Violence Shelter Services
- Legal Services
- Regional Shelter Services
- Senior Services
Proposals are requested for activities that support city-sponsored youth programs and non-profit services to the public.
Because the legitimate needs of Scottsdale’s low and moderate income population exceed the funding available, this is a very competitive process. Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to attend the orientation; however, if you cannot attend this meeting, applications will be available beginning Thursday, October 3, 2013, at the City of Scottsdale, Community Assistance Office, 7515 E. 1st Street, 85251 or by downloading off this Internet page.
