Hamilton County receives funding from HUD in the community Black Grant Program each year. In 2021 it was $3.4 Million. This money will be used to benefit low to moderate-income households & areas, create economic opportunities, provide safe & secure housing, and improve living environments for communities and residents.

A portion of this ($750,000 in 2021) is set aside for Social Services. Each Spring, an RFP process is begun to award these funds to non-profit social service providers that meet the objectives in the County’s 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan set forth here.

All contracts will be awarded to the non-profit entity whose proposal is most advantageous to the program with price and other factors considered. 

Non-profit entities that wish to submit a proposal must do so through the Neighborly software application.

Check back here for information on the RFP when available.
