The Department of Commerce’s Community Development Division will begin accepting Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Community and Public Facilities and Affordable Housing Development grant applications February 15-March 15, 2019. The CDBG Community and Public Facilities Application Guidelines, Affordable Housing Development Application Guidelines, and CDBG Grant Administration Manual can be accessed on our website.
The CDBG program is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program designed to help communities provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expand economic opportunities for the state’s low- and moderate-income residents. The State of Montana receives an annual allocation of federal funds from HUD for CDBG grants and program administration through the Montana Department of Commerce. The CDBG program helps local governments complete activities such as drinking water systems, wastewater treatment facilities, community facilities, job creation and retention, and housing.
