CDBG RFP for Public Social Service Programs

Tri Towns of Brimfield, Holland and Wales




Request For Proposals For Public Social Service Programs

The Tri-Town communities of Brimfield, Holland and Wales are seeking proposals from qualified public social service organizations that are in need of funding assistance in order to provide needed services to area residents.  Proposals may be included as part of a regional grant application through the FY 2022 Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG).  The Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC), on behalf of all three communities, will accept proposals for activities that are designed to benefit Tri-Town residents. Any proposed project or activity must also primarily benefit low to moderate income residents of the town(s) in which the grant program serves.

The Towns may choose to fund all, any or none of the proposals submitted and at the funding level deemed appropriate for this program.  Agencies or organizations identified for inclusion in any of the grant proposals will be required to submit additional information as part of the full CDBG application to be submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) by Friday, March 3, 2023.  Programs funded by the MA DHCD are anticipated to begin in the fall of 2023. The PVPC is assisting these communities in the coordination and administration of their community development programs.  For more information or to receive a proposal request form and copies of the Community Development Strategies, please contact PVPC Senior Planner, Gabriel Filer, at (413) 781-6045 or e-mail


All proposals must be submitted via email to or mailed to the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, 60 Congress Street, 1st Floor, Springfield, MA 01104-3419 by 3:00 P.M., Friday, February 3, 2023.
