[ARCHIVED] Community Development Block Grant Funding Program


Request for Proposals for fiscal year 2017-18 due by 12:00 p.m. on Friday, January 20, 2017.

The City of Rancho Santa Margarita anticipates receiving an estimated $200,000 in CDBG funds from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for Fiscal Year 2017-18.  The primary objective of the CDBG program is the development of viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low- and moderate-income.

CDBG-eligible activities include a wide range of programs including social services. Activities must primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons, that is, households with an income less than 80% of the County median income.  Funding for social service programs is limited to 15% of the City’s CDBG allocation for a given year – approximately $30,000 for Fiscal Year 2017-18.
At this time, the City is accepting applications from tax-exempt nonprofit organizations that provide eligible CDBG services that benefit low- and moderate-income Rancho Santa Margarita residents.  Entities that would like to apply for funding may obtain an application by contacting Mike Linares (see contact information below). Applications must be submitted to the City of Rancho Santa Margarita Development Services Department by 12 PM, Friday, January 20, 2017.  Rancho Santa Margarita City Hall is located at 22112 El Paseo, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688.  Late applications will not be accepted.   

Questions regarding this notice or the application process should be directed to Mike Linares at (949) 635-1800 X6702 or via email at
