The County of San Mateo and cities of Redwood City, South San Francisco, and San Mateo have joined to create a Consolidated Community Funding Application that is only available for online submission. The City of Daly City, which follows the same application format, allows for applications to be completed online at or via completion of this Word document. In either case, hard copies of the application must be mailed or dropped off in person to the City. Online submission of the application to Daly City is currently not possible. The Daly City application has two parts: 1) Required Supporting Documentation and 2) Common Application. There is no application supplemental for Daly City.
Attached is the CDBG application. Please keep the following in mind:

  1. Consolidated Application: The application is formatted for Word Form fill-ins. The ‘Project Specific Narrative’ and ‘Assessment of Need’ sections have unlimited text space for the narrative, however, the remainder of the narratives are limited to 750 characters. The length of the form will expand as needed. Please make you answers as brief and succinct as possible while providing the requested information.

  1. If the requested funding will benefit Broadmoor, Colma, or unincorporated area residents, please exclude these residents from the numbers of Daly City households/persons to be served (under project beneficiaries, Question 18).

  1. After initial review of your application, we may contact you with specific questions about the information you have provided. Please be prepared to provide additional documentation (e.g., lists of Daly City residents who are in need of the program services or of past beneficiaries), as your application will be incomplete if you are unable to furnish evidence of need by Daly City residents.

  1. Please be prepared to provide CDBG staff with a sample of client income verification documents, if requested. If funded, you will also be required to maintain records on ethnicity, family size and female heads of households.

  1. If you are new at this, please feel free to attend our informational meeting at the City Hall Training Room on Thursday, January 3, 2013, at 10:00 A.M. Daly City City Hall is located at 333 – 90th Street. We will be going through the application and answer questions regarding the CDBG process. This meeting is not mandatory, but all applicants are encouraged to attend.
