Last updated on February 12, 2024

The City of Orlando Housing and Community Development Department is anticipating an announcement from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regarding the Program Year 2024-2025 (PY2024) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program (HOPWA).

The federal funding allocations for Program Year 2023 were $2,424,636 in CDBG, $206,553 in ESG, $1,385,671 in HOME, and $5,544,737 in HOPWA. The City of Orlando anticipates receiving similar funding allocations for PY2024 and is soliciting proposals from non-profit organizations that serve the community. This notice begins the local application process.

HOME program funding applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. HOPWA program funds are administered by Orange County. CDBG program funds are available for the provision of affordable housing, community and economic development activities, and assistance for low- and moderate-income persons and special populations within the City of Orlando. The city will give priority to affordable housing and related services.

ESG program funds are available for activities that support rapid re-housing, homelessness prevention and emergency shelters. Activities funded by CDBG and ESG programs must contribute to the goals and objectives of the City of Orlando Consolidated Plan and meet all applicable federal requirements.

All interested non-profit agencies are invited to apply for PY2024 grant funding. The CDBG pre-application and ESG application are available on ZoomGrants. You will need to create an account or sign in to your existing account to apply.
