Periodically, usually once a year, the City issues a request for proposals to fund community partners working on public service, public facility and housing initiatives. Applications are available for non-construction programs and construction projects.
Who is eligible to apply for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME and General Funds?
- Public non-profit organizations, including instituitions of higher education
- Private organizations
- Government agencies
CDBG, HOME or General Funds?
This is not a simple question since the programs overlap.
Here are some guidelines:
- All assistance is limited to activities within the City of Wilmington
- Non-Housing programs are funded with CDBG or General Funds only
- New housing construction is funded with HOME funds only
City staff will decide which funding source is most appropriate for your project.
