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.

Program Year 2020

The City of St. Cloud adopts an Action Plan each year for CDBG funding. For Program Year 2020, the plan includes the following activities:
