Talent Enhancement Capacity Building Grant Program


Please visit our Trainings and Workshops page and the Guidelines and Applications page for more information.

The Talent Enhancement Capacity Building (TECB) grants are part of a collaborative with East Carolina University's Office of Engagement, Innovation and Economic Development. The grants are intended to address the challenge of developing talent in smaller, rural economies in North Carolina.

The goal of TECB grant is to provide for local units of government and non-profits (in partnership with local units of government) the opportunity to build capacity in the following areas: to develop appropriate and competitive CDBG grants, administer CDBG grants, grant writing, grant administration, economic impact analyses, community survey research and design, and feasibility study preparation. A TECB grantee must submit a future application in another CDBG grant category.
The TECB grants will follow all CDBG rules, regulations, and policies.
