The County of Henrico participates in the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) the HOME Investments Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 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 27, 2023 for funds available for the 2023-2024 Program Year.
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: https://www.zoomgrants.com/zgf/2023_Application_for_Funding
An online training on how to apply using ZoomGrants will be conducted via WebEx on Thursday, February 9 2023 at 10:00 am. Participants may join using the following link: https://henrico.webex.com/henrico/j.php?MTID=m65ec385bedc0b96ceaccf0048e4fddda It is recommended that attendees establish their ZoomGrants account prior to the training.
