Each year, we reach out to the community to solicit residents’ input for the Annual Plan (a PDF) and to share information about the CDBG application process.

CDBG Applications

Depending on the project, federal money may be available for your community.  Residents and non-profit entities working in the unincorporated area of the county may propose projects for CDBG funding that benefit low- and moderate-income persons and align with the County's Consolidated Plan.  For in-depth information regarding the annual Funding Plan Development Schedule and downloadable applications, please use the links below.
