How can I get involved in the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program?
The City of Inglewood believes that citizens can significantly contribute toward the operation of a successful program by participating in the planning, implementation, and monitoring of community development activities. As community representatives, citizens bring knowledge of the problems and needs of individuals, groups and neighborhoods. Citizens’ participation help the City Council make more informed decisions regarding community development activities in Inglewood. The City submits your suggestions and comments in the annual report to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). To get involved, you can:

- Attend community meetings, public hearings and City Council meetings to voice your opinion of how CDBG funding should be spent.
- Let your with your City Council member know your opinion; send them a letter, schedule a visit or call them.
- Organize your block, or apartment building. Meet with your local block club group and start to strategize!
- Educate your neighbors or people in your family about CDBG funding and how they can become involved.

CDBG has several public hearings throughout the year. For more information on CDBG public hearings, please call 310-412-8800.
