The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) serves to perform activities and projects which primarily meet the national objective of benefiting low-to-moderate income persons and households. The plan includes activities and programs the city intends to implement with CDBG and CDBG-CV funds under program year two of the Consolidated Plan during the reporting period of October 1, 2021, through September 30, 2022. Funds are received annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for local projects that benefit predominately low-to-moderate income persons. The city anticipates receiving $893,633 in FY 22 (PY 21) program funds under year two of the Consolidated Plan and will use amended funds available at the end of the current year for housing, public services, neighborhood and community development activities, and grant administration. The balance of remaining CDBG-CV funding $1,163,935 continues to be used under year two of the Consolidated Plan for grant administration and public service activities eligible to prepare for, prevent or respond to the Coronavirus.

These funds are received annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for local projects that benefit predominately low-to-moderate income persons.
