Livermore allocates CDBG funds on an annual basis. The City issues requests for applications following a funding cycle that begins each December. The applications are reviewed by the City's Human Services Commission, an advisory body comprised of local residents, that provide recommendations to the Livermore City Council for funding. If the City Council approves a program for funding, the agency can begin delivering services from July 1 through June 30 of the next year.
Projects funded with CDBG grant money must primarily benefit low-income individuals and families in Livermore. The Human Services Commission will require documentation that your program meets eligibility requirements. City Staff is ready and willing to assist you to complete a CDBG application and help your organizations meet the CDBG requirements.
If you would like to be placed on our CDBG mailing list, receive a sample application, or would like assistance to complete an application, please contact city staff.
