Chigago:DFSS CDGA Information

Dear DFSS Delegate Agencies,

Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the City of Chicago is extending through December 31, 2021 all contracts awarded to delegate agencies under the FY2018 Community Development Grant Application (CDGA) process. These contracts went through a competitive bidding process in spring 2018, with a contract term from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020 and a one-year extension option. Please refer to the bottom of this text for a list of programs released through the FY2018 CDGA.

Typically, the CDGA package of requests for proposal would have been released for bid this spring – however, as we are all under immense pressure to continue providing critical services to Chicagoans, it will be postponed until 2021.

Because of this, delegate agency contracts under CDGA will be extended through December 31, 2021. Delegate agencies will need to complete the required contract documents and submit to DFSS for review and approval. DFSS will provide these documents as well as a timeline for that process later this year. Please direct any questions you may have to the assigned liaison for your contract.

Thank you for all that you do every day to support vulnerable Chicagoans. We deeply appreciate your partnership.

Sincerely,
Lisa Morrison Butler
Commissioner
