What is CDBG?

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides funding to address a wide range of unique community development needs. The City of Meridian receives CDBG funds annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

City of Meridian Objectives

The City has adopted a five (5) year consolidated plan that spans from 2017 to 2021, which focuses on 1) improving accessibility, 2) enhancing homeownership opportunities, and 3) providing social services to Meridian low- and moderate-income residents. All activities that are funded must meet one of these objectives.

Accessing CDBG Funding

Community partners interested in furthering the goals of the consolidated plan are invited to apply for CDBG funding every spring. The Community Development Program Coordinator will work with potential applicants to determine if the project qualifies as a Meridian CDBG project.  Recommended projects will be presented to City Council for final approval.

Contact us at any time throughout the year if you would like feedback on a potential project.
