The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, funded through the US Department of Housing & Urban Development, is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. CDBG is designed to help meet the needs of disadvantaged and at-risk citizens and neighborhoods.
The CDBG program works to ensure decent affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in our communities, and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses. CDBG is an important tool for helping local governments tackle serious challenges facing their communities.
In addition to CDBG funds, the City of Arvada has budgeted $60,000 in General Fund dollars and $75,000 in HODAG loan repayment dollars to allocate to human services providers in the community.
Grants for the 2016 - 2017 CDBG and Human Services funding pool were allocated by the Arvada City Council in November, 2016. Applications for 2017-2018 grant funds will be available in fall of 2017.
