The City of Knoxville will be accepting applications from non-profit organizations and public agencies for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds made available to the City by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The grants are designed to help fund projects related to neighborhood stabilization, crime prevention and safety; housing rehabilitation; home ownership; job creation and the homeless and chronic homeless.

About $700,000 is available for distribution.
