Up to $250,000 is available for State Fiscal Year 2021 (January 1 – June 30, 2021) to support eligible communities.  Funding is available to support up to three and half additional years for eligible projects, resulting in up to a total $2 million CTF commitment over a four year period that includes FY21 (January 1-June 30, 2021), FY22, FY23, FY24 and FY25 (July 1-December 31, 2024).
