Community Development Administration (CDA)
The Community Development Administration (CDA) serves as the City of St. Louis’ clearinghouse for federal, state, and local funds. CDA works to implement the Mayor's economic justice agenda by funding a wide range of public and nonprofit entities to provide public services, build affordable housing, combat blight, and conduct various other community development activities.
Funding and Training
Through transparent, competitive funding cycles, CDA solicits quality proposals for housing and community development activities. Through the Non-Housing RFP, CDA solicits quality proposals for community and economic development activities. Through the NOFA process, CDA solicits quality proposals for residential development projects. To assist applicants, CDA periodically holds training sessions to assist in the development of proposals.
CDA encourages participation at all stages of the process. This section includes the City's Plan for citizen participation and past and current meeting notices, and document review requests.
The City of St. Louis is targeting ARPA funds to communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The map below consolidates over 10 factors ranging from life expectancy and violent crime rates to education attainment and Internet access to identify the census tracts in the city with the most needs. You can you find additional citywide details on the Economic Justice Index Overview map.
