2024-25 CDBG Program — Needs Assessment (Community Development and Public Services)
Between November 1, 2023 and January 10, 2024, the City of Thousand Oaks is inviting interested parties to assist in identifying the unmet needs of lower-income persons and households in Thousand Oaks that could potentially be addressed with a portion of the City’s annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or by using other Federal resources depending on the priority of need and the availability of funds.
Non-profit housing and community development organizations are also invited to apply for a share of the City’s CDBG funding for an activity that primarily serves low-income people. The fiscal year runs from July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2025. In addition to available CDBG funds from prior years, the City estimates a portion of $614,000 in CDBG allocation for community development projects and public services (limited to 15% of the annual grant amount).
On Thursday, November 16, 2023, at 6:00 PM, a “Needs Assessment Public Hearing” will be held in the Boardroom at City Hall (2100 Thousand Oaks 3rd Floor). Applicants for the CDBG grants, as well as other interested parties, are encouraged to attend. See Administrative Hearing Agenda below for meeting detail and option to participate via teleconference.
