Process by which Funding Recommendations are made to the City Commission (General Funds and CDBG Funds Only):

The application process and funding awards are recommended by the Community Development Advisory Board (CDAB) and approved by the City Commission. The CDAB is an advisory board, made up of up to eleven (11) Hollywood residents, appointed by the City Commission.

Each year the CDAB holds a publicly advertised Citizen Needs Assessment prior to the grant cycle. The Board then identifies the public service focus areas for the Community Development Block Grant based on citizen needs, data and other resources.

The CDAB reviews the grant applications, listens to applicant presentations for both the General Fund Agency Grants and CDBG Funds and collectively makes funding recommendations to the City Commission.

CDBG applications are due by February 10, 2022 at 3:00 PM to the Community Development Division, located at City Hall, in the Old Library Building- North Entrance.
