The City of Baltimore’s Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) invites non-profit organizations and City Departments to submit proposals for projects to be funded through the CDBG Program. The major focus of Baltimore’s CDBG program is physical and social development activities. A restricted portion of the grant funds can be expended for social services and administrative and planning costs. Requests for funding under these categories will be carefully weighed to ensure adherence to expenditure caps. All applications for CFY 2022 (CD-47) funds must be submitted electronically via the Neighborly platform.
