QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Please submit any questions you may have to cjminnich@santafenm.gov. We will publish answers that are pertinent to all applicants here.

1) How much funding is available?

AHTF: $3,000,000

CDBG: Estimated $600,000 (22-23 grant) + up to $600,000 in reprogrammed funds

 

2) For past recipients/grantees, is there a way to edit our Munis registration, or should we re-register?

If you are an existing vendor, you do not need to re-register. Please see the City of Santa Fe Vendor Self Service Guide for more information on how to update your existing account, including name and address information. For new applicants, please refer to the same guide for directions on how to register an account.

 

3) Is there a size limit on email attachments for the application submission?

The City's email server limits attachment size per email to 25MB. We recommend that you submit your application via a dropbox link, especially if you are including additional attachments.

 

4) Does a deferred developer's fee constitute an organizational "match"?

Yes, this resource is deferred to increase the immediate financial viability of the project, so it's a match.

 

5) Are applications required to be submitted using the fillable PDF file? Or can the same layout be used, but completed in Word, then saved and submitted as a PDF?

The latter option is fine, as long as the applicant ensures the same layout is used and nothing is omitted.
