Application Process for Federal Grants

​Salem provides funding opportunities to help support local nonprofit organizations and other groups to provide services, public facilities, and affordable housing for low- and moderate-income residents and neighborhoods.

General funds and federal funds are awarded through a competitive, annual process. The application process for 2018 has closed.

Salem receives entitlement funding annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer and provide oversight of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) programs.
