What is CDBG?

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides financial assistance to income eligible property owners and organizations. 

Block grant funds are federal dollars used to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities - principally for low and moderate income persons in the community.

The CDBG program is very flexible in the types of activities they can do. With the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, CDBG will address the following needs identified by the community:

  • Housing Strategy
  • Homeless Strategy
  • Other Special Needs Strategy
  • Community Development Strategy
  • Economic Development Strategy

CDBG and the City invite all contractors to register with the City to be added to CDBG's registry for work.  CDBG is a federally funded program created to assist low/moderate income homeowners with their housing rehab needs.
