Applying for CDBG Funds


Please refer to the Resources page for information on applying, as well as application forms. Please contact Lyle at 701.667.7623 if you have any questions.

Applications and supporting documentation should be submitted via fax (701-255-7228) or email.

*At the option of the CDBG committee, due dates for final applications may be extended. This option may be exercised without public notice at the sole discretion of the committee if final applications are invited after March 15th due to availability of additional funds resulting from additional allocations, returned or unobligated funds or fund transfers.

In such cases the committee may extend the final application deadline up to five months after committee approval of a pre-application but not later than seven days prior to the latest date by which applications and amendments must be received by DCS.
