The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federal grant program by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG is a formula grant allocated to local governments for the purpose of developing viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities principally for persons of low and moderate-income.
Each year, the City receives approximately $200,000 of CDBG funds from HUD for local community development, housing activities, and public services. The City administers the distribution of funds to service providers and for capital projects. Regulations governing the CDBG program require that each activity meet one of the following three broad national objectives:
- Benefit people with low and moderate incomes
- Aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight
- Meet an urgent need (such as earthquake, flood, or hurricane relief)
The following examples of the activities and services that the City has implemented with CDBG funding:
- Niguel Woods Street Improvement project
- Sea Country Senior Center Expansion project
Fair Housing and Tenant/Landlord Counseling Services
- Services for youth, senior, persons with disabilities, and homeless
