Funding Opportunities

The City of Milwaukee Community Development Grants Administration (CDGA), receives annual funding allocations from the Federal government to fund activities to develop viable urban communities. This is accomplished by providing affordable, decent housing, a suitable living environment and by expanding economic opportunities principally for low and moderate income persons.

Our office submits a Funding Allocation Plan that describes how the City will utilize Federal funds to address the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development’s (HUD) national objectives. Yearly, CDGA will open the formal application process for funding to entities that will help meet those objectives.

As in past funding cycles, applicants must meet certain organizational standards to be eligible for these funds:

  • A municipal governmental agency; or
  • A nonprofit organization located in the City of Milwaukee and organized under Chapter 181 of the Wisconsin Statutes, qualified as a Section 501(c)(3) organization, at the time of grant application submission.

In addition, all funded activities must be eligible and meet one of the three (3) National Objectives of HUD:

  • Principally benefits low/moderate income persons
  • Prevents or eliminates slum or blight
  • Addresses an urgent need or problem in the community (e.g., natural disaster)

Requests for Proposals for the 2024 program year are currently closed. While this process is not set on a definitive timeline, Requests for Proposals typically begin between August and November. Please come back to this page as we will be frequently updating with new information.
