Share this page:

Colorado Springs, CO - The City of Colorado Springs Community Development Division is pleased to announce that they are soliciting applications for its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Public Facilities and Improvement funds. The City is making available approximately $1,000,000 for eligible public facilities and improvements projects within the City of Colorado Springs.

The primary purpose of CDBG funds is to serve low- and moderate-income residents who reside within the city limits of Colorado Springs. Public Facilities and Improvements projects aim to improve local communities by providing decent housing, improved infrastructure, public facilities and services, and improved economic opportunities.  The Community Development Division is seeking to fund shovel-ready projects that meet the needs of the community, while also meeting agency goals. Non-profit and public agencies are invited to apply, provided the proposed improvements will be open to the general public and will primarily benefit low-income communities.

The application for the program can be found at the Community Development Division’s website. One complete physical copy of the application is due no later than 4:00 p.m. on August 4, 2018 at the Community Development Division office at 30 S. Nevada Avenue, Suite 604, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. All applicants are required to attend a pre-application workshop on:

June 26, 2018

9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

City Administration Bldg, Ste. 102

30 S. Nevada Avenue, 80903

This workshop will cover important information on the types of eligible projects along with rules and regulations governing the CDBG program. Attendance at this session is required for all applicants. Attendance will help project eligibility and ensure critical technical assistance about the 2018 CDBG application and program before an agency invests the time and resources necessary to apply.

There is no limit to the number of applications that an agency may submit, but each project should be submitted as its own application. Applications selected for funding may receive less than the requested amount, depending on the number of applications received and the available funding.
