* The entire standard Policies & Procedure Document can be found in the Library tab. Some items on the standard document maynot apply to CDBG CARES Act CV funding.

Removal of Funding Restrictions

Whereas the CDBG program generally has a 15% cap on funding eligible organizations for the purpose of providing public service programs that address the needs of low-to-moderate income persons, the CARES Act allows that CDBG-CV funds may be used for this purpose without this restriction.

Agency Eligibility

The following agencies are eligible to apply for funding from the Community Development Block Grant Program:

  1. All non-profit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt agencies (administrative capacity must be demonstrated as part of the application process or by past )
  2. Governmental agencies


Agencies must have a local board of directors or advisory board that governs the agency. The board must be of sufficient size to be representative of the diversity of the community served.


Applications shall be received by the City staff and the Lewisville Community Development Block Grant Advisory Committee for review to determine if the following criteria are being met:

  1. The agency is a 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS. This does not apply if the agency is a governmental agency that meets other application
  2. The agency must have or obtain a unique DUNS number.
  3. The application must address an eligible COVID Relief Area of Focus.
  4. The application must propose a program or project listed as an eligible activity in HUD regulations at 24 CFR 570.201 – 206.
  1. The proposed activity must meet a National Objective of the CDBG

 Selection and scoring criteria for the CDBG-CV funding expands on the annual CDBG Request for Proposals (RFP) with three goals in mind: to streamline the process for returning applicants, to expedite the application and selection process, and to tailor the process to the hardships of COVID-19.

Eligible Areas of Focus

Following discussions with non-profit providers and other government agencies, the City of Lewisville adopted the focus areas below for CDBG-CV funding.  Considerations included avoiding duplication of services where some needs are being addressed by other funding sources, and assessment of needs which were especially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.   

Eligible areas of Focus are:

  • Internet Connectivity;
  • Domestic Violence & Child Abuse;
  • Child Care;
  • Mental Health.

Only programs supporting the outlined categories are eligible to apply for funding.  The Community Development Block Grant Advisory Committee will review proposals in the light of these needs.
