Community Development Block Grant

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federally funded grant program. CDBG funds are awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to qualifying communities to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.

The second phase is underway focusing on stakeholder engagement to establish goals and priorities for addressing affordable housing and community development needs over the next five-years with CDBG dollars. There will be community stakeholder meetings, a community needs survey and a fair housing forum.
