Kitsap County is an Entitlement Community under the federally funded Community Development Block Grant Program.  Funds are received annually from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for local projects that primarily benefit low income people.  Kitsap County published a 2018 Policy Plan detailing the management of its CDBG and HOME programs. It is available below.

Kitsap County also receives funding through Washington State legislation for the Consolidated Homeless Grant Program and the Homeless Housing Grant Program (ESSHB 2163), providing grant funds to reduce homelessness in Kitsap County, and for the Affordable Housing Grant Program (SHB 2060), to develop and support affordable housing.  Policy Plans for these programs are linked below.   For more information about these programs, please go to the Housing and Homelessness Program page.

The City of Bremerton approved the awards for City of Bremerton HOME projects at their Bremerton City Council meeting on November 2, 2016.

NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE:  The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is the legislative body of Kitsap County which administers the CDBG, HOME, Homeless Housing and Affordable Housing grant programs. As the legislative body, the BOCC approves the Action Plan and the awards. The BOCC also serves on the Kitsap County Consolidated Housing Authority dba Housing Kitsap Board as provided under state law. Because all three county commissioners sit on the Housing Kitsap board, it is impossible for them to all recuse themselves from approving grant awards. Housing Kitsap submitted applications for the 2017 grant cycle. The BOCC does not receive financial benefit as board members for Housing Kitsap but understand the perceived conflict of interest and therefore appoint citizens to serve on the Grant Recommendation Committee to review Coordinated Grant Applications and make funding recommendations. The BOCC receives the recommendations for consideration and final approval.

Each year Kitsap County conducts a competitive funding application process through a single coordinated grant application, including the following grant funds:

Community Development Block Grant Funds (CDBG)
HOME Investment Partnership Consortium Funds (HOME)
Affordable Housing Grant Funds (AHGP)
Homeless Housing Grant Funds (HHGP)

The application cycle begins in May of each year with a technical assistance session for prospective grant applicants (NOTE: For the 2017 cycle the TA session will be MANDATORY).

A public process is used to make funding recommendations in September with funds available in January of the following year. 

This process is detailed the Citizen Participation Plan in each funding source's Policy Plan. The public is encouraged to participate in the process and its end product. 

Part of the Citizen Participation Plan includes Grant Recommendation Committees, made up of citizen volunteers who are appointed by the Mayors and County Commissioners.  The Grant Recommendation Committees meet regularly on the first Wednesdays of the month (except January, when it is the second Wednesday), from 1pm - 3pm, in the Norm Dicks Government Center.  Please contact staff for more information

To better understand the funding sources and regulatory requirements associated with all of these funding sources, applicants are encouraged to refer to the Policy Plans.
