Community Development Block Grant Program - CDBG - CLOSED

Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG)- The County of Lehigh is seeking applications from municipalities and non-profit organizations for projects benefiting Lehigh County residents living outside the city limits of Allentown and Bethlehem.



Applications are now available for Lehigh County’s COVID-19 Relief Non-Profit Block Grant Program. In partnership with the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley (UWGLV), and through funding made possible by the American Rescue Plan (ARP), Lehigh County will be administering funding to all eligible non-profit organizations that apply. Applications are open until September 30, 2022.



The County of Lehigh is seeking applications from non-profit organizations, political subdivisions, or municipal authorities for the 2025 Tourism Development Grant program.

The main goals of this grant are to assist organizations which are promoting tourism on a regional level and which encourage visitors to plan overnight stays in our local hotels.  Tourism Development Grants may be awarded for projects occurring in Lehigh County that encourage substantially large events or which improve facilities, are regional in nature, and which have the potential to draw significant numbers of people.  Capital projects (but not general maintenance) which will promote tourism, events, or conventions are also acceptable.
