Block by Block, Building Thriving Communities

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides funding for projects that help low- to moderate-income neighborhoods thrive. Projects range from sidewalks to community centers, youth job training programs, and much more.

Your Input is Vital

We want to hear from Kansans - residents, economic and community development professionals, and engaged community leaders - what the quality and importance of community amenities, educational opportunities, commercial amenities, employment opportunities, healthcare, quality of place, and housing are in your city. The results of these surveys will inform the creation of our five-year plan for CDBG. It’s vital that your input is received. If you have any trouble with completing the surveys, please reach out to a member of our CDBG team and they will gladly assist you.
