The City of Lawrence’s Community Development Department is seeking proposals and input for inclusion in its Action Plan for the City’s Fiscal Year 2019. The Fiscal Year 2019 Program Year will run from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. Successful proposals must address the housing and community development needs in the City of Lawrence’s Consolidated Plan found on the City’s web site, and this RFP, and must meet the guidelines articulated in this Request for Proposals (RFP).

Funding for the FY 2019 Program Year available under the CDBG Program is estimated to be $1,400,000, of which approximately $210,000 may be available for allocation under this RFP. In order to guide responses toward City priorities potential applicants should consider that the City expects to fund proposals within the guidelines in the RFP.

The City of Lawrence Planning and Development Department is seeking proposals for small-scale funds up to $1,500 per project for the current fiscal year (FY’18) ending in June 2019, to help residents and community leaders improve the quality of life in places they live, work, and play. This new Neighborhood Innovation Grant program is intended to support community-driven, grassroots projects that promote community engagement and collaborations between groups and organizations across the City.   

The Neighborhood Innovation Grant Program is funded by the City of Lawrence through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, which aims to improve the quality of life in low to moderate income communities. Other sources of funding will be available to projects in neighborhoods that do not meet HUD’s median area income requirements for CDBG funds.
