Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

What is CDBG? - Community Development Block Grants are grants provided to larger cities and urban counties by the U. S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to develop viable communities by providing funds for decent housing, suitable living environments, and opportunities to expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income (LMI) households. The City of Greeley annually receives approximately $840,000, 70% of which must be used to the benefit of low- moderate-income households and/or neighborhoods. CDBG is an important tool for helping the City tackle serious challenges facing the community. Greeley has received CDBG funds for more than 30 years.
