The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program supports community development activities to build stronger and more resilient communities. To support community development, activities are identified through an ongoing process. Activities may address needs such as infrastructure, economic development projects, public facilities installation, community centers, housing rehabilitation, public services, clearance/acquisition, microenterprise assistance, code enforcement, homeowner assistance, etc.
CDBG funding originates with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. Yakima County partners with the Washington State Department of Commerce to secure and administer federal CDBG funding.
