Eligibility

How to Apply: CDBG-PFED applications may be submitted at any time, and are reviewed by DOA as they are received. CDBG-PFED funds are awarded on an as-needed basis throughout the year, provided that the Applications meet a CDBG National Objective (in conjunction with HUD program regulations). Application materials and submission instructions should be carefully reviewed prior to applying for CDBG-PFED funds. Review Process: For each Grant Application received, DOA reviews the Application (on a case-by-case basis) to determine the eligibility & fundability of the proposed project. Successful Applications must meet a CDBG National Objective (in accordance with HUD program regulations). DOA anticipates a minimum 60-day review time period for submitted Applications. Applications deemed eligible & fundable will be awarded State CDBG-PFED funds. Award Process: Award letters will be issued upon determination of the Communities' (and their respective Businesses') abilities to meet a CDBG National Objective in accordance with HUD program regulations. The award letter outlines the next steps required to accept & execute a Grant Agreement (i.e. contract) with the State of Wisconsin.
