What is CDBG?
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program. This federal program was developed to ensure decent affordable housing for all, provide services to the most vulnerable in our communities, create jobs, and expand business opportunities. CDBG is an important tool in helping local governments tackle the most serious challenges facing their communities. The CDBG program has made a difference in the lives of millions of people living in communities all across this Nation. For more information about HUD programs, visit www.hud.gov .
The City of Naperville is an “entitlement community.” Entitlement communities develop their own programs and funding priorities. Each year, a maximum of 15% of the funds can be used for public services, a maximum of 20% can be used for grant administration, and 65% is used for public facilities, infrastructure improvements, and housing programs, also called “direct benefit”. Organizations that are awarded funds are called “sub-grantees.” In Naperville, approximately 15 sub-grantees carry out the city’s goals and objectives for low-and moderate-income residents with CDBG funds.
The application cycle usually begins with an annual meeting in the fall to discuss the city’s priorities for the year. To be placed on the mailing list for this meeting or for more information about applying for funds, contact us at (630) 305-5315 or via email at email@example.com.
