Public Services Grant Program
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs, including projects and activities that focus on low- to moderate-income households.
How do agencies receive funds?
The city opens a competitive application process at least once a year. Applicants must qualify as a 501(c)3 organization, identify and address urgent needs of the community and projects must serve income-eligible individuals or families.
The Housing and Community Development Citizens Advisory Committee reviews applications and makes funding recommendations to Mayor and City Council. These recommendations are included in the Annual Action Plan submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. If you're interested in serving a three-year term on this committee, please contact BoiseConsolidatedPlanning@cityofboise.org.
