The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federally funded program intended to increase housing, community and economic opportunities for low and moderate-income residents of the City of DeKalb.
The City is required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to submit a Consolidated Plan every five years plus an annual One Year Action Plan which describes community needs, resources, priorities and proposed activities to be undertaken under CDBG. The City will receive an estimated $400,000 in CDBG funds for Program Year 2018 (April 1, 2018- March 31, 2019).
The Draft Annual Action Plan for 2018 is available on the City’s website at www.cityofdekalb.com and in hard copy at the City Clerk’s Office, DeKalb Municipal Building, 200 South Fourth Street and the DeKalb Public Library at 309 Oak Street beginning March 24, 2018.
