2017 Requests for Funding
The proposed allocation for the CDBG Program Year 2017 is $1,131,888.00
Applications are separated into the Public Service and Non-Public Service categories. Federal law caps the amount of CDBG funding that can be spent on Public Service projects at 15% of the City’s total allocation. Applications are then separated into subject categories for convenience; this separation is somewhat subjective as some applications do not fit easily into a category and/or span more than one category.
