$2 million has been set aside for the Housing Grant program in 2023. Communities can receive up to $300,000 for housing rehabilitation and /or demolition, or up to $500,000 for neighborhood development with $300,000 allowed for housing and $200,000 for infrastructure. Communities must match 50% of the infrastructure funds.
This program funds housing improvement projects to benefit low- to-income households in a target area. If the community selects to include demolition the national objective is slum and blight.
Grant applications are evaluated for funding based on project need, readiness, impact, sustainability and matching funds source and availability.
Key considerations include:
Yes, the application requires a 25% cash match.
Yes, it can but at least 10% of the match must be cash.
No certifications are required.
Cities and Counties can qualify by using the 2015 HUD Census data spreadsheet to determine their current LMI percent that HUD is reporting as a qualifier. If the community does not meet our 51 percent LMI requirement based on the data in that document, they can choose to do an income-based survey of the city or county that benefits from the project. Sometimes projects are not a city-wide or county-wide benefit, which results in target area benefit. To meet the 51 percent LMI requirement for this type of project, an income-based survey of the beneficiaries only in that area is required. Additional information on how to conduct an income-based survey can be requested from the CDBG team.
Cities are eligible to submit only one application per year for our Annual Competition. Counties may apply for two. They may apply for one for themselves or one on behalf of another organization or entity.
LMI help The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program requires that each CDBG funded activity must either principally benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) persons, aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight, or meet a community development need having a particular urgency.
