For the past 30 years, the City has used its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement funds to provide housing programs, streets and drainage reconstruction, parks, neighborhood facilities, and public services to assist low and moderate income residents and to address deteriorated conditions in the City's older neighborhoods. In accordance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations, all activities supported with CDBG resources must directly benefit low and moderate income persons or eliminate slum and blight. The fiscal year for the program is from October 1 to September 30.
The CDBG Division of the Grants Monitoring and Administration Department is responsible for the planning and oversight of the City's $17 million CDBG Entitlement grant program. This division provides technical assistance, financial and program management analysis to subgrantees, project sponsors and other City departments, and is responsible for monitoring all project activities to ensure compliance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulatory and policy requirements.
