Community Enhancement Grants

Annually, the City of Raleigh receives federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. The City

allocates a portion of this funding through a Request for Proposal process to non-profit organizations serving low-

and moderate-income persons or areas. $175,000 in CDBG funds were made available for this year’s program.

Eight proposals were received, with requests totaling $376,251. Proposals were evaluated by City staff from the

Community Development and Community Engagement Divisions of the Housing & Neighborhood Department. Five

agencies are recommended for Community Enhancement Grant funding in FY17: Families Together (formerly PLM

Families Together), Interfaith Food Shuttle, StepUp Ministry, Communities in Schools of Wake County, and The

Green Chair Project.

Community Enhancement Coordinator, at (919) 996-6963 or via e-mail a
