Rockville Accepting Grant Applications

Rockville nonprofits and government agencies can now apply to receive a portion of $75,000 in grant money being distributed through Rockville’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.rockville

The program provides federal grants for housing and community development projects that must benefit low- and moderate-income households or neighborhoods. Rockville receives CDBG funds through an agreement with Montgomery County.

You can find specifics about the grant including an application here. Grant applications are due by August 14.

Applications will be reviewed and prioritized by City staff and forwarded, with recommendations, to the Mayor and Council for review and approval this fall.

Residents and organizations may voice their opinions on community needs and CDBG funding priorities at a public hearing to be held at the Mayor and Council meeting at 7 p.m. on July 20.

Anyone wishing to speak at the hearing should register with the City Clerk’s Office by calling 240.314.8280 between 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays. The public comment period will remain open for approximately two weeks to accept written testimony for those not able to attend the hearing.

In recent years, Rockville has prioritized CDBG funding for capital and physical improvements, specifically rehabilitating housing for qualified residents.

Recent grants provided:
• Rehabilitation funds for public housing units in the city.
• Support for Rockville’s Single-Family Rehabilitation Program, which provides forgivable loans to low- and moderate-income residents to make critical repairs to their homes.
• Renovation of group homes for individuals with severe mental illness.
