Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Overview
Grants Manager's Message:
Welcome to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Division web page. The CDBG Division is dedicated to implementing programs that meet community development and housing needs. We take great pride in helping to make our city beautiful, safe, and economically sound. It is our hope that this web page will serve as an informational tool to the community as well as an avenue for gathering public input. Join the City of Inglewood and the CDBG Division in making our City a wonderful place to live and work.
The CDBG Division's mission is to direct, manage and coordinate federal grant programs funded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to meet community development and housing needs. Each year the City of Inglewood receives the following three types of federal funding for projects and programs that improve the community:
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME)
Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG)
Through the Consolidated Plan process, the division's primary objectives include meeting HUD's national objectives, which are:
- Serving the needs of very-low, low- and moderate-income persons; and
- Removal of slum and blighted conditions;
- Alleviating urgent needs (in federally-declared disaster areas).
