The City of Peoria, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and with General Fund monies, provides funding to not-for-profit agencies whose programs provide services to eligible recipients. These funds are administered by the Community Assistance Division of the Planning and Community Development Department and are awarded by the Council Not-for-Profit Subcommittee annually. The City has funded not-for-profit agencies through HUD and the General Fund for many years.
Programs and grants funded by HUD that are eligible for review through the Council Not-for-Profit Review and Housing Subcommittee are the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Program. In general, these programs were designed to assist low and moderate income citizens with a broad range of services including housing assistance, family services, domestic violence shelter, disabled services and transportation services to name a few.
Grants funded by General Fund monies are generally designed to assist Peoria residents and include activities such as health and welfare programs, children’s programs, arts programs, music programs, homebound services, elderly assistance and many others.
On January 2, 2019, the City will begin accepting proposals for the use of HOME Program, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and General Fund Not-for-Profit funds for the July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 period of funding. The City anticipates receiving CDBG funds of approximately $850,000 and a HOME Program allocation of approximately $220,000. The exact allocations will not be determined until finalized by the Federal Government. The City also anticipates General Fund monies of $241,500 to be available. The proposal submission deadline for agencies who wish to utilize these funds is January 28, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Funds are anticipated to be available in July 2019 for General Fund programs and October 2019 for Federal programs.
All applicants will be required to submit proposals utilizing ZoomGrants, an online, cloud based system.
