The City of Arvada Human Services and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program (funded through the US Department of Housing & Urban Development) is designed to help meet the needs of disadvantaged and at-risk citizens and neighborhoods by awarding funding to non-profits who provide services to the most vulnerable in our community.
Each year the City of Arvada Human Services Advisory Committee awards grant funding to non-profit organizations who meet the funding criteria.
The organization applying for funding must have had non-profit 501 (C) (3) or 509 (A) tax exempt status.
- A majority (51% or greater) of the beneficiaries receiving assistance from the project or program proposed for funding must have been low or moderate income (LMI) persons or households.
- The persons or households receiving assistance from the project or program must have been generally presumed to be principally LMI persons or households. This presumption covers abused children, battered spouses, elderly persons, severely disabled adults, homeless persons, illiterate adults, persons living with AIDS and migrant farm workers.
*Note: A low- and moderate- (L/M) income person or household is where the total income of a person or all members of a household is equal to or less than the current Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Assistance Program low-income limit established by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
As a general guide that low income limit would be $52,000 for a single person or single person household or $74,250 for a four person household.
