Community Development Block Grant Program

 

The City of Meridian is a designated entitlement community by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This designation allows the City to receive funds from HUD's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The purpose of the Program is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and expand economic opportunities, especially for low-and -moderate income individuals and families.

 

What is the long-term plan for using CDBG funds to benefit our community? 

The City of Meridian adopted the 2012-2016 Consolidated Plan in August 2012. This plan sets the spending priorities for the City of Meridian's Community Development Block Grant funds for the next five years, and it is based on an analysis of current conditions and input from the citizens of Meridian. These documents can be accessed via the links below. If you have any questions about the Community Development Block Grant program, please contact Sean Kelly, the CDBG Administrator at skelly@meridiancity.org
