CDBG-CV Small Business Assistance Program

Step 1 - Preliminary Eligibility

The purpose of the preliminary eligibility application was to maximize the chances of identifying businesses that are potentially eligible for grants and to minimize the business owner’s up-front investment of time and documentation gathering.  

Small business funding needs provided in the preliminary eligibility survey responses exceed available funding; therefore, Step 1 is now complete.

Step 2 - Funding Applications

Submitted funding applications are under review.  No new funding applications are being accepted at this time.  Please contact Leslie Murphy, Economic Development Specialist, at, for Skokie small business inquiries, or Carrie Haberstich, Planner/CDBG Administrator, at, for Skokie CDBG program inquiries.
