Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships Grant

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) grant are programs administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The programs provide funding in support of low and moderate-income persons and neighborhoods in Westminster. The grant amounts are based on population size and the number of low- to moderate-income persons residing in the community. Any project or program funded with these federal dollars must meet specific eligibility criteria set by HUD, address a community need, and meet a national objective of the program.

If you are interested in receiving email updates on Westminster’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, please contact the CDBG team and they will add your name to the list.
