Community Development Block Grant Program

The County of Union has been allocated $2.2 million in CDBG-CV funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The funding is to be spent to prepare for, respond to, or prevent COVID-19. Any project administered with these funds must also meet CDBG regulations and criteria. Funding is available in specific assistance categories for organizations to administer to residents impacted by COVID-19.

In making decisions for funding with this special CDBG-CV allocation, Union County will consider factors such as the eligibility, national objective and whether the project provides substantial community benefits to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus. Projects must serve a majority of low and moderate-income persons.

Projects must be ready to implement immediately. Eligible sub-recipients may use the funds for building improvements (public facilities); and public services that prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.

Incomplete applications will not be considered for funding. If you have any questions about the funding, required documents, or eligible projects, please contact Brandon Givens, Director, at 908-527-4462 or by email at

We encourage applicants only to apply to administer funds within their capacity.

Applications will be reviewed and scored for the applicant’s financial/accounting capacity and compliance, community need for the proposed project, overall project benefits, experience and HUD compliance.

CDBG-CV Application will open on Wednesday, January 18th at 9am and close on Friday, February 3rd at 5pm.

By request, translation services and documents, as well as alternative accessible document formats, are available to persons with varying language needs or disabilities.
