The City of Newport Beach anticipates receiving approximately $370,000 in Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for fiscal year 2019-2020, which starts July 1, 2019, and ends June 30, 2020. The Newport Beach Community Development Department is currently accepting applications from non-profit organizations seeking to provide CDBG eligible public services generally described below and fair housing services. Federal regulations limit funding for multiple public service agencies to fifteen percent of total grant funding (approximately $55,500). Priority for funding will be given to those public services meeting one of the Strategic Plan goals included in the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan, the 2015-2016 Annual Action Plan, which is included in the five-year Consolidated Plan, subsequent Annual Action Plans and the prior years Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports are available for viewing online at http://www.newportbeachca.gov/CDBGreports.
ELIGIBLE PUBLIC SERVICES: Applications for programs must demonstrate that the service will principally benefit persons of low- and moderate-income (households earning less than 80% of Orange County’s median income). Types of eligible services include but are not limited to housing and/or support programs for victims of domestic violence, abused children/youth, the disabled, seniors, or the homeless. Additionally, programs addressing unemployment, inadequate healthcare, crime prevention, or substance abuse rehabilitation are eligible. Again, all programs must benefit persons of low-and moderate-incomes.
FAIR HOUSING AND LANDLORD-TENANT SERVICES: Applications will also be accepted from organizations seeking to provide fair housing and landlord-tenant services in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Fair housing and landlord-tenant services will be paid from the City’s CDBG Administration funds and not from funds allocated to public services.
