Lee’s Summit Community Development Block Grant Application Period Begins January 5

The City of Lee’s Summit will accept applications from qualified agencies for the 2023-24 Community Development Block Grant funding from Jan. 5 – Feb. 3, 2023. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awards federal grant funds to the City on an annual basis. These funds must be used to meet the needs of low- to moderate-income individuals and families, address slum or blight in Lee's Summit, or meet an urgent need.

Lee's Summit is designated as an Entitlement Community under the Community Development Block Grant program by HUD, which gives the City the authority to administer the grant funds within the community. The City was awarded $333,409 for the 2022-23 grant year. Grant funding for the 2023-24 program year which runs from July 1, 2023, through June 30, 2024, has yet to be announced.  

Public agencies and nonprofit organizations may apply for funding to support eligible programs and projects. For-profit entities may also be eligible for consideration if the proposed programs or projects serve a public purpose and meet the national objectives as well as the City’s CDBG Consolidated Plan objectives. Individuals are not eligible to apply.

Proposals and funding requests will be presented by applicants to the City Council’s Community and Economic Development Committee at a public hearing in March 2023. At that time, the public will have an opportunity to provide input before the committee recommends a funding allocation plan to City Council for adoption.

For information about the Community Development Block Grant program, visit cityofLS.net/CDBG. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Feb. 3, 2023.
