Funding Opportunities

Each year Dane County develops an Annual Action Plan for the expenditure of CDBG and HOME funds expected to be received by HUD for the following calendar year. Action Plans are developed as part of a 5-Year Consolidated Plan which provides the basis and strategy for the use of federal funds allocated to Dane County over the five year period. The Annual Action and Consolidated Plans are developed with significant citizen participation outreach and consultation including public hearings, surveys, and focus groups.

CDBG and HOME Funding Categories are based on the five-year Consolidated Plan

2025 Application Process

The 2025 CDBG & HOME Request for Proposals (RFP) process opens April 17,  2024. After the RFP window closes, the Application Review Team (a subcommittee of the CDBG Commission), will meet to review and score applications, and allow for presentations from the applicants.  They will make preliminary funding recommendations to the CDBG Commission, and final recommendations after a scheduled public hearing.  All funding recommendations are reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee, Personnel and Finance Committee, and the County Board. All meetings are publicly noticed.  You can view previous years RFPs and applications here:
