Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
CDBG funds are used to improve local communities by providing decent housing, improved infrastructure, public facilities and services, and improved economic opportunities for low- and moderate-income residents. These funds may also be used for activities that help prevent or eliminate slums or blight or for projects that meet urgent community needs. CDBG awards are targeted to households earning up to 80% AMI.
Using federal funds from the CDBG and HOME Investment Partnership programs, the City:
- Assists developers build affordable housing
- Improves neighborhoods and accessibility
- Pays for needed services for families and individuals
The City’s CDBG program contributes approximately $1.4 million in federal grants and loans annually to area nonprofit organizations and other groups to provide services, public facilities and affordable housing for low- and moderate-income residents and neighborhoods.
