Community Economic Development Planning Grants

The purpose of these grants for Community Development Corporations (CDCs) is to stimulate new Community Economic Development project development through administrative capacity building. This funding opportunity is aligned with the following priority areas: (1) Executive Order 14008: Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad and the Justice40 Initiative, which underscore funding support for energy communities, (2) increased equity in geographic distribution of CED funds, in accordance with the CED statute, and (3) breaking down service silos and leveraging existing partnerships to reduce poverty through a wraparound services model for communities with low incomes.
