Pawtucket Announces CDBG Applications Are Now Available

PAWTUCKET – The City of Pawtucket is now accepting applications for the FY 2023 Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

This competitive program has served the city of Pawtucket partner organizations in the past, including during the COVID-19 pandemic, with grants ranging often from $5,000 to $20,000 the cover the costs for various eligible projects.

“This grant funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development has continued to help our city and the many organizations in it, particularly during the pandemic as they continue to assist our community,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien.

Eligible agencies must have a 501(c)(3) tax exemption status and at least over 51% of their clients must earn very low, low or moderate incomes as defined by U.S. Housing and Urban Development. Eligible grant expenses include the cost of labor, supplies, and/or materials required for the provision of services to agency clientele.
