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.
The Department of Community Development is responsible for administering the CDBG program. The city has partnered with Brothers Redevelopment to provide an Emergency and Minor Home Repair Program to income qualified homeowners using CDBG funds. The city’s HOME grant is administered by Adams County agencies. The Adams County Office of Community Development offers essential home rehabilitation services to income-qualified homeowners in Westminster. Adams County Housing Authority provides down-payment assistance for income-qualified homebuyers in Westminster. 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.
The program year for Westminster’s CDBG and HOME grants run from March 1 to Feb. 28. Activities funded with these grants will meet objectives identified in Westminster’s 2010-2014 Five-Year Consolidated Plan, the document that identifies local priority needs.
