CDBG Application Process

Community Development Block Grant Program Application Process


In order to receive funds from the city's block grant program, applicants must demonstrate a given project or program's conformance with the eligibility requirements mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Programs providing an area-wide benefit must be located in one of the city's eligible areas. Programs providing direct-benefit services to recipients, 51% or more of which are Portland residents from households of low to moderate income, may also qualify for funding.
