CDBG Poster

The city of Carrollton, as an entitlement community, receives an annual grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The grant helps fund programs that assist Carrollton residents of low- and moderate-income.

Through Program Year 2014, Carrollton has received approximately $12 million dollars for projects and grant administration. Additionally, the amount used for grant administration, as a percentage of the total grant, is one of the lowest in the region. Efficient use of the grant is important to maximize the benefits to low- and moderate-income residents.

City Seeks Public Input on Federal Grant Funding

On October 1, 2014, the City of Carrollton will received approximately $731,079 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  According to Federal law, these funds must be utilized for the principal benefit of person of low-and moderate-income in Carrollton. In order to receive these funds the city of Carrollton must complete a document every three to five years called the Consolidated Plan.  The purpose of the Consolidated Plan is to identify a jurisdiction’s housing and community development needs, priorities, goals and strategies; and to stipulate how funds will be allocated to housing and community development activities.

 

In an effort to solicit increased community participation and involvement in identifying community development needs, the City of Carrollton will held (3) public meetings to receive your comments on the 2014 – 2018 Consolidated Plan and PY 2014 Action Plan.  The first draft of the plan is now available for comment.  Please click on the link below to review the document.

CDBG Document Library

As a recipient of CDBG funds, the city is required by Federal law to produce several reports. These require Adobe Reader to view.

A note about the program year designation: HUD's calendar does not match the "standard" calendar year; program year 2011 actually starts on October 1, 2011 and ends on September 30, 2012.
