CDBG Program

The primary objective of the CDBG Program is to increase the supply of decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing within the City’s communities and to support the programs that are designed to assist low- and moderate-income families and individuals while stimulating and fostering economic growth.

The CDBG funds are received from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG funds are used for a wide range of activities, including housing rehabilitation, public improvements, and public services. The funds must be used to support at least one of the City’s seven goals adopted in the FY 20-24 Consolidated Plan:

  • Increase Supply of Decent Affordable Housing
  • Improve Public Facilities and Infrastructure
  • Provide Opportunities for Homeownership
  • Promote Business Growth and a Robust Workforce
  • Assist Public Service Agencies Serving Community Needs
  • Affirmatively Further Fair Housing
  • Effectively Plan and Administer Community Development Programs

Every year the City is required to create an Action Plan and Budget to outline how the funds will be used. In FY 2021-22 the City received $287,000 in CDBG. Funds were designated for the following projects: Owner Occupied Rehabilitation, sidewalk construction, debt service payment on the Park Avenue Center, and support of public service agencies.
