Objectives and Scope

The City of Monterey’s Housing and Property Management Office distributes funds to non-profit organizations providing community services to low- and moderate-income Monterey residents through its annual community services grant funding process.

Each year, non-profit organizations can apply for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Agencies may be awarded a Grant based upon the target population and services they provide. Documents are posted in Adobe PDF unless otherwise noted.

Anticipated Funding Availability
It is anticipated that funding for the Public Services Grants program will be in a similar amount to that allocated in FY 2018/19. In FY 2018/19 approximately $126,000 will be allocated to Public Services Grants. The City of Monterey may determine minimums and/or maximums for funding requests for more efficient allocation of funds. Until further notice, applicant agencies should consider minimum grant thresholds of $4,000 and maximum thresholds of $20,000 per program or project. Due to funding constraints and emerging needs of the community, the City of Monterey reserves the right to modify proposed budgets and/or scopes of work to better target the City's identified priorities. Advance notification and consultation concerning such modifications will be provided to the applicant if the application is approved.
