We offer funds for projects that can range from housing and street repairs to industrial loans and job training.

State CDBG funds are only available to non-entitlement areas (incorporated municipalities under 50,000 and counties under 200,000 in population).

FUNDING LIMITS:
The maximum amount available varies, depending on the type of project. Please refer to the individual categories for more information.
