Request for Proposals from Non-profits Offering/providing Services funded under CDBG

The City is an Entitlement Recipient of CDBG funding and it intends to award grants to several agencies that are capable of providing eligible services to Low-To-Moderate Income Limited Clientele residents of the City.  Services may include, but not be limited to: helping residents meet their healthcare, housing education, substance abuse treatment, homelessness, and nutritional needs.  Proposed services must not currently be financially supported using other CDBG funding, including Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act CDBG funding, in order to avoid any duplication of benefits.

This project and Request for Proposals is contingent upon the City receiving federal CDBG funding as administered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.  As such, this Request, or parts of it, may be rescinded at any time prior to the successful negotiation and execution of a contract between the City and the selected agencies.

  1. Application: Agencies wishing to apply must request an application packet and submit a response to the City prior to 4:00 PM (local time) on September 30th. Proposals not received by the deadline will not be considered. The application may be found at
  2. Statement of Qualifications: Applying agencies must submit four (4) printed copies of their proposals to the City.
  3. Evaluation Criteria: The City will select agencies and level of funding that it feels are the most qualified from the proposals submitted. 
  4. Contract: Selected agencies will be expected to sign a contract or a contract amendment in the case of agencies that provide CDBG services to the City already, with the City, which will include stipulations required by federal agencies, the CDBG program, the state of Iowa, and the City.  Said contracts, a draft of which will be made available to potential applying agencies, will contain all of the required language.

All questions regarding this request should be directed to Michelle Pezley, of the City of Cedar Falls at (319) 268-5194 or
