CDBG and HOME Programs

Overview

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a federal grant program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that provides funding for a variety of projects and programs to serve low income residents and areas.

The Home Investment Partnership Program is also funded by HUD and provides funding exclusively for affordable housing activities benefitting low income households. 

More information on these programs can be found on the following HUD Web Pages:

Uses of CDBG and HOME Funds
The City receives about $600,000 - $700,000 each year in CDBG and HOME funds. Much of the funding is allocated to non-profit agencies.  The CDBG and HOME funds are used to develop and maintain affordable housing, finance public improvements and fund public service agencies that serve lower income households.

CDBG and HOME Grant Recipients
All public service grant recipients are required to complete and submit progress reports online through Zoomgrants.
