CDBG Block Grants available for nonprofits

Jan. 9, 2019

The City of Leavenworth Community Development Block Grant program is taking applications for grants. Eligible entities must be social service nonprofits within the Leavenworth city limits. The funds can be applied to rent or utilities to groups that provide service to the community, as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Funding is still being determined by the federal government, however last year Leavenworth was able to provide $50,210 to local agencies for service efforts. 

The 2019-20 application is available from the City’s Community Development Coordinator Mary Dwyer by emailing mdwyer@firstcity.org or calling 913-680-2628. Applications are due 4 p.m. February 22, 2019.
