Beginning August 7, 2023, through September 15, 2023, Allegheny County Economic Development (ACED) will be soliciting pre-applications for construction related projects for its 2024-25 (Year 50 cycle) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Per ACED guidelines, if your municipality is a member of a Council of Governments (COG), all applications should be submitted through said COG. Every QVCOG member community is eligible to apply for CDBG funding for “non-income based” projects exceeding $20,000 in cost such as ADA accessibility improvement projects and blight remediation. Additionally, member communities may submit pre-applications for general recreation, road reconstruction, and sewer and water projects with the completion of a concentrated household income survey. All are encouraged to consider potential projects with their municipal engineers & staff. The QVCOG is happy to facilitate meetings with municipalities to discuss the pre-application process. Pre-applications will be due to the QVCOG by end of business on Monday, September 11th.
In typical fashion, any pre-application will need to be submitted utilizing a Google form (see below).
