FY 2023 CDBG Applicants' Workshop

Annual CDBG Competition

Join us in Columbus, Georgia on January 17-18, 2023 for the FY2023 CDBG Applicants' Workshop!  DCA Staff and other guest speakers will provide detailed training on the Community Development Block Grant Annual Competition application as well as the set-aside program applications.  The purpose of this workshop is to inform local government officials and other interested parties of the procedures to be used in preparing CDBG applications.  The workshop is designed to provide you with an opportunity to learn the details involved in preparing an application, to ask questions and to share information.  At the workshop, you will be provided an Applicant's Manual that describes the application process and the guidelines used in the evaluation process.

Additionally, the Application Portal Overview general session will provide a walk-through and step-by-step guidance for completing DCA's online application.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a fully-charged laptop to engage with this module in a real-time environment.

Whether this is your first or 20th DCA CDBG application, you won't want to miss this event.  Come prepared to learn and network!
