* To start a new application, everyone needs to start a new application for Public Services Grants, regardless of what type of grant you are applying for.

* Everyone will not be funded. Our total public services allocation is capped at 15% of our total CDBG grant allocation + previous year program income (roughly a total of $80,000 for Public Services grants).

* Your application is not complete until all required documents are submitted.

* Each CDBG application will be reviewed to determine:

     - CDBG Eligibility

     - Financial Capacity/Stability

     - Project fits into the priorities set out by the Consolidated Plan

     - Innovativeness

     - Recent Problems

The CDBG applicant rating system for the first stage can be found here. Applicants will need at least 50 points to move to stage two.

* HOME Subrecipient and CHDO applicants will be rated according to HOME regulations (https://files.hudexchange.info/resources/documents/MonitoringHOME_Guidebook.pdf).
