Community Development Block Grant
The City of Woodland receives an annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the Federal government. The CDBG program, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), allows the City of Woodland to issue grants to local organizations for the implementation of eligible CDBG activities such as:
- Affordable housing
- Construction or improvement of public facilities and infrastructure
- Economic development
- The provision of public services
- Revitalization efforts
- Other activities that benefit low and moderate-income individuals and areas
Apply for CDBG
Typically, the City issues a notice of funding availability for CDBG applications in early winter, with yearly funding awards approved in April by the City Council. If you are interested in applying for CDBG funds, complete the application.
For the City of Woodland to receive its annual entitlement grant from HUD, the City must develop a Consolidated Plan every five years. The Consolidated Plan is a plan of five years in length, which describes community needs, resources, priorities, and proposed activities to be undertaken by the CDBG program. In addition, each year HUD requires the City of Woodland to complete an Annual Action Plan, which details the goals and objectives regarding how the City will expend its yearly CDBG allocation, along with a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). Links to the current program documents are the following.
The City of Woodland must develop and follow a detailed plan which provides for, and encourages, citizen participation and which emphasizes participation by persons of low or moderate income, particularly residents of predominantly low and moderate income neighborhoods, slum or blighted areas, and areas in which the City proposes to use CDBG funds.
