CDBG Overview

Since 1985, Clark County has received over one million dollars annually in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. Congress created the CDBG Program with the enactment of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. The Department of Housing and Urban Development, through the CDBG Program, annually allocates these funds in a single or "block" grant to eligible cities and counties with the objective of improving communities. The funds are then distributed to municipalities, organizations and groups through a competitive proposal process.

Each October, the Clark County CDBG Program requests proposals from applicants in order to award the next year's CDBG funds. Proposals received are evaluated in several categories to determine which projects will receive the funding.

Who can apply for funds?

CDBG funds can only be given to cities, non-profits, private companies, but not private individuals. Families wishing to rehabilitate their home can use funds through the Housing Preservation Program.

Funding eligibility

In order to be eligible for CDBG funding, a project must meet one of the three National Objectives. The principle National Objective is that the project must primarily benefit persons of low and moderate income. The projects must also be an eligible activity. Further program information can be found linked to the buttons on the left.
