Community Development Block Grant
Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships Grant
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) grant are programs administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The programs provide funding in support of low and moderate-income persons and neighborhoods in Westminster. The grant amounts are based on population size and the number of low- to moderate-income persons residing in the community. Any project or program funded with these federal dollars must meet specific eligibility criteria set by HUD, address a community need, and meet a national objective of the program.
The national objectives of the CDBG/HOME programs are to:
benefit low- to moderate-income persons;
prevent or eliminate slum and blight conditions;
address urgent community needs; and
increase home ownership and affordable housing opportunities for low- and very-low-income individuals.
Activities funded under the CDBG program will meet objectives identified in Westminster's 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan the document that identifies local priority needs.
