Beginning in January 2017, Davis County will make available application materials for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funded by the U. S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). These funds will be awarded to participating cities and nonprofit organizations that provide services to low-and moderate income (LMI) persons living in Davis County. The following activities are eligible for funding by CDBG: street and sidewalk improvements, low-interest housing rehab loan programs, home ownership down payment assistance, emergency home repairs, development of parks, neighborhood plans, affordable and transitional housing projects, economic development projects, and domestic violence shelter projects. Local nonprofit agencies are eligible to receive help for rehabilitation of their facilities and for public service programs operated to assist LMI persons. You may obtain information on Davis County CDBG goals to ensure your application fits the needs of the County.
At the same time Davis County is moving forward to make available application materials for the Social Service Block Grant (SSBG) program. These funds will be awarded to nonprofit organizations that provide services to help strengthen Davis County families prevent homelessness and have access to timely, safe crisis services.
These are competitive grants. Funding recommendations will be provided to the County Commissioners by review committees and to the public for review and comment. After a public hearing, the Commission will decide which applications are funded, and at what funding level. These funds will be available beginning July 2017, subject to HUD approval of the Davis County 2017-18 Action Plan. Application forms must be submitted for each proposed project. Information packets and application forms will be available at the Davis County Clerk-Auditor Office, Room 102, located in the County Administration Building located at 61 South Main Street, in Farmington.
