Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awards grant funding through the CDBG Program.  The City participates in the program and funding is coordinated through Broward County. In the past, $30,000 of the total CDBG award to the City has been reserved for public service projects.  The funding for public service projects has been used to fund projects of non-profit organizations.  The City has typically approved applications to two non-profits in the amount of $15,000 each.  Applications are for funding the following fiscal year (2020), not the current fiscal year at time of submittal (2019).  Successful applicants in fiscal year 2019, which begins Oct. 2018, will receive funding in fiscal year 2020, which begins Oct. 1, 2019.

​​​​​Application period for non-profit organizations opens March 19, 2019.
