Community agencies urged to apply for grant to benefit Phoenix small businesses

[Source: City of Phoenix] — The City of Phoenix’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Economic Development Open Application Program is administered by the Community and Economic Development Department (CEDD).  The goal of the program is to provide funds to community agencies that, in turn, foster economic growth in Phoenix’s small business community by providing direct business assistance. CEDD issues this Request for Proposals (RFP) annually.

This is an ongoing process and CEDD will accept proposals for the 2008-2009 Economic Development Open Application Program now through June 30, 2009.  To be eligible for the first review, proposals must be received by 5 p.m., Friday September 26, 2008.  Subsequent review deadlines will be established as needed.
