The Fiscal Year 2024 Funding Opportunities Planning Calendar is a tool created by the Regulatory Services Department to inform entities of expected release dates for applications. Our desire is that this schedule helps entities plan accordingly throughout the year. You also can use this information to identify opportunities for which your entity may be eligible. We expect all applications to launch on the dates provided in the schedule, but there may be rare occasions when a change will be made. This schedule will be updated monthly.
