Community Development Block Grant

Project Year 2018/19
The City received $514,103 for the CDBG 2018/19 program year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for administration of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.  HUD determines the amount of each grant by a formula that uses several objective measures of community needs, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing, and population growth in relationship to other metropolitan areas.

HUD awards grants to communities to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.  Communities are required to give maximum feasible priority to activities that benefit low-moderate income persons.

Activities may also aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight, or in certain circumstances, meet other community development needs having a particular urgency.  These three categories of activities are referred to as the “CDBG National Objectives”.

The City provides a portion of its CDBG funds on a competitive basis to eligible outside agencies for specific activities that meet one or more of the above CDBG National Objectives and that will further the City’s CDBG goals and objectives, as stated in the 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan.
