For more information, see the CDBG-PF website:


How to Apply: CDBG-PF funds are awarded through an annual competitive process. Application materials and submission instructions should be carefully reviewed prior to applying for CDBG-PF funds. Review Process: For each Grant Application received on or before the Application Submission Deadline, DOA reviews, scores, & ranks the Applications based on a pre-approved list of scoring criteria. Successful Applications must meet a CDBG National Objective (in accordance with HUD program regulations). Applications that earn enough points in the review process will be awarded State CDBG-PF funds. Award Process: Communities with successful applications (that have met the threshold requirements for funding) are announced and each community receives an award letter which documents the next steps required to accept & execute a Grant Agreement (i.e. contract) with the State of Wisconsin. Next Steps & Requirements: Community grant administrators will be required to attend implementation training.
