Feedback Needed on Community Development Block Grant Program
February 28, 2019
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) released draft guidelines for the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The CDBG program provides funding opportunities to local governments that do not participate in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) CDBG entitlement program.
HCD is seeking feedback from stakeholders for its CDBG draft guidelines. The draft guidelines are based on HUD’s CDBG regulations and will replace the existing state regulations after they are finalized.
CSAC will review the draft guidelines and provide comments. We are interested in any feedback from counties by March 25, 2019 via email to email@example.com. CSAC also encourages counties to submit comments directly to HCD via email to CDBGRedesign@hcd.ca.gov by HCD’s March 29, 2019 deadline.
HCD is hosting one more webinar to discuss the draft guidelines. The webinar will be held at 2 p.m. on March 12, 2019. Please register for the webinar here.
More information on the CDBG program is available on HCD’s CDBG webpage.
