Select a question link to open the answer.
The CDBG program is a block grant given by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program is authorized by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 in place of several community development categorical grant programs. CDBG provides eligible metropolitan cities and urban counties (called "entitlement communities") with annual direct grants that they can use to revitalize neighborhoods, expand affordable housing and economic opportunities, and/or improve community facilities and services, principally to benefit low- and moderate-income persons.
The grants are available, by application, to programs that directly benefit low to moderate income populations. For more information about CDBG, please visit CDBG page.
In addition to the City Manager and Deputy City Manager, the office houses the Department of Economic Development, the Community Development Block Grant Administrator, the City Attorney, the City Clerk, and the Public Information Officer.
