Community Development Block Grants

Program Overview


The Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) Program provides annual grants on a formula basis to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low and moderate income persons. The program is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended.

HUD determines the amount of each entitlement grant by a statutory dual formula which uses several objective measures of community needs, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.

The City then accepts applications for the funds from eligible applicants and awards funds to activities which meet a national objective, meets a CDBG objective, is an eligible activity according to CDBG entitlement program guidelines and is consistent with the priorities and objectives of the Consolidated Plan.
Eligible applicants are as follows
 

  • Private non-profit organizations that have received 501(c)(3) federal tax exempt status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and are registered as non-profit corporations in the State of Washington
  • Faith-based organizations in accordance with 24 CFR 570.200(j)
  • Public agencies and city departments
  • For-profit entities authorized under 24 CFR 570.201(o)
