HUD recently published notice of their 2021 Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) competition.
Projects are to serve a predominantly low-moderate income (LMI) population. Grants can be for up to $750,000 and require match of $250,000 for full points
(1/4 cost share). Eligible project areas include public facilities, infrastructure, housing rehabilitation, and some economic development (creating jobs for LMI people). Past Grand Ronde ICDBG projects HUD selected include the Food Bank and the Police Station
and current projects include the Language Education Building (in design now), and the Community Services Center Addition (about to start design). Council will be reviewing options to decide on a possible 2021 application.
Suggestions and comments on the current opportunity can be sent to Kim Rogers, Planning & Grants Development Manager at Kim.Rogers@grandronde.org or you may call him at (503) 879-2250. Comments should be sent by 5:00 PM on Monday September 27, 2021. Comments are also requested regarding the Tribe’s two current ICDBG grant projects.
