Investment in Our Community
Every year, the City of Boise receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address a wide range of community development needs, including community improvement projects and projects that focus on low-to-moderate income households.
Funding Community Improvements
CDBG funding is intended to be used for the development of viable urban communities by providing the following in low-to-moderate income areas:
- Decent housing
- Suitable living environment
- Expanded economic opportunities
The funding can also be used to provide public services for low-to-moderate income households.
What is the Consolidated Plan?
According to HUD, the Consolidated Plan "helps states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions."
