Community Development Block Grant

CDBG funds must be used to meet one of three national objectives: benefiting low and moderate income people, preventing and/or eliminating slums and blight, or meeting an urgent need. CDBG funds can be used for: buying property, public works, clearance and demolition, accessibility for disabled people, historic preservation, relocation payments, rehabilitation or reconstruction of housing, home ownership, housing services, lead-based paint evaluation and reduction, new housing construction, non-profit activities, public services, public facilities, special economic development, micro enterprises, Section 108 guarantees, planning, fair housing, citizen participation, and general administration. HOME funds must be used to benefit low and moderate-income people. HOME funds can be used for rehabilitation and reconstruction of single family and multifamily housing, home ownership, new housing construction, and tenant based rental assistance.

It is estimated that the City will be receiving $1,344,333 in CDBG and $562,317 HOME funds for the 2019-2020 Program Year from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
