CDBG Funding - Now Available!

Beaumont, CA— The County of Riverside EDA is now accepting applications from non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations, higher education institutions, and special districts for funding under the 2018-19 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at HUD. The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to 1209 general units of local government and States.

CDBG-funded projects must satisfy one of three national program objectives:

  •  Provide a benefit to low and moderate income persons,
  •  Prevent or eliminate slums and blight, or
  •  Meet other urgent community development needs due to natural disasters or other emergencies. 

Examples of eligible activities include:

  •  Public Services: senior services, disabled and handicapped services, child care services, health services, youth services, and fair housing
  •  Public Improvements: streets, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, streetlights, sewers, storm drains, traffic signals, parks and recreation facilities, health facilities, and fire station improvements.
  •  Housing Services: home improvement programs for lower and moderate income household.

All eligible organizations seeking City of Beaumont funding must submit their application to the City of Beaumont by September 28, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. The Beaumont City Council will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at approximately 6:00 p.m. at 550 E. 6th Street, Beaumont, California 92223, to receive testimony and comments from all interested persons regarding approval of use of Fiscal Year 2018-2019 CDBG Funds. 

### 

The CDBG program is a federally-funded program administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As an Urban County in the Entitlement CDBG program, the County receives an annual formula allocation of CDBG funds from HUD. HUD determines the amount of each grant by using a formula comprised of several measures of community need, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing, and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.
