Comprehensive Neighborhood Revitalization Planning Fund

CDBG Programs

Assisting Projects that Plan for Neighborhood Revitalization

Community leaders can use this program to fund a focused plan for neighborhood revitalization.

The program is funded through the federal Community Development Block Grant program. The goal of this program is to provide economic opportunities and facilities for people, especially those of low- and moderate income.

The project resulting from a successful plan must ultimately meet the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Low-Moderate Income and/or Slum and Blight National Objective
  • To meet this objective, the application must document that the proposed plan will outline the extent or seriousness of deterioration in the area to be assisted. It must also show a clear adverse effect on the well-being of the area and illustrate that the proposed activities will help to alleviate or eliminate the conditions causing the deterioration and fulfill housing and community development needs.
  • Submitted plans resulting from this program found to be clear, practical and effective will lead to an invitation to submit a subsequent application for up to $1.75 million in actual activity funding.
The Comprehensive Neighborhood Planning Fund will be taking new applications from Tuesday, September 5, 2023, through Wednesday, November 22, 2023, at 11:59 p.m.
