CDBG has three major types of funding categories:
Public Service: While normally Public Service activities are capped at 15% of the annual CDBG allocation plus prior year program income. However, under the current pandemic situation, HUD is waiving the maximum allocation under the Public Service category which allows the City to award funding to public services in excess of this cap. Examples of public services include, but are not limited to, services such as counselling, homeless services, services for battered spouses, literacy programs, childcare, medical/dental services and fair housing.
Community Development: Examples of eligible community development projects include residential rehabilitation programs, lead remediation, acquisition, infrastructure improvements, and community facility improvements that will further the City’s effort to create viable communities.
