The Village of Skokie will accept funding proposals for the 2020-21 CDBG program year in December 2019
Each year, under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act, HUD provides funds for local communities. Skokie is an "entitlement community," and thus is eligible to apply directly to HUD for annual CDBG funding. CDBG funds can be used for property acquisition, rehabilitation, infrastructure improvement projects, housing programs, limited social services, and other activities consistent with local planning goals. HUD requires that all projects benefit low-income people of the community or address blighted conditions. Building rehabilitation and capital improvements proposals must be located within the Village of Skokie. Social services operating funds are always extremely limited. HUD will determine any questions of eligibility.
