The County of Henrico participates in the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investments Partnerships (HOME) programs funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As of PY 23-24, Henrico County no longer receives ESG funding. The County advertises a notice of funding availability and encourages organizations to submit proposals for the use of these funds, consistent with the County’s Five-Year Consolidated Community Development Plan. Henrico County administers these funds and facilitates the application process through the Department of Community Revitalization. The next application cycle will open on or around January 26, 2024 for funds available for the 2024-2025 Program Year. Applications are due on March 4, 2024.
The Department of Community Revitalization uses ZoomGrants to manage its applications and grants. Applications for funding will only be accepted through the ZoomGrants system, a free, on-line platform that requires registration. Applicants who already have a ZoomGrants account can apply by logging into their account. Applicants who do not have a ZoomGrants account associated with Henrico County can register here.
If you need technical assistance with ZoomGrants, please contact Geleene Goffena.
All applicants are required to include a federal UEI (unique entity identifier) in their application. The UEI can be obtained from sam.gov. Applicants are strongly encouraged to register for a UEI or verify that they have an active UEI number well before the application deadline.
If this is the first time Henrico CDBG, HOME, or ESG funding has been requested for this program or project, a pre-application meeting with staff is required. Please contact the appropriate person below to schedule as soon as possible. Meetings must be scheduled by Friday, March 1, 2024.
