Apply for Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus funds (CDBG-CV) using this application and guidance document.

(Important Notice: Our application is only to be used by local governments.  We are unable to accept requests from individuals in need of personal assistance with rent or utility payments.)

This program is designed to help a non-entitlement municipality or county prepare, prevent, or respond to the health and economic impacts of COVID-19. The activities must be most critical to their locality and primarily for their low- and moderate-income residents.

Beginning September 1, 2020, the North Carolina Department of Commerce and its Rural Economic Development Division will award CDBG-CV funds on a first-come, first-served basis with a focus on local needs identified by the community in collaboration with state and local health officials.  Applicants may view current COVID-19 metrics on the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services website.

If you are uncertain whether an activity is an eligible activity or need a program waiver, please email your questions and requests to Valerie D. Moore, CDBG Section Chief, at
