NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Beaumont has opened the CDBG application period for the FY 2021-2022 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) cycle for Cooperating Cities within the County’s Urban County CDBG program.
The CDBG program is a federally-funded program administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As an Urban County in the Entitlement CDBG program, the County receives an annual formula allocation of CDBG funds from HUD. HUD determines the amount of each grant by using a formula comprised of several measures of community need, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing, and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.
All activities funded with the County's CDBG funds must:
- Serve persons or communities within the City;
- Be an eligible activity under CDBG regulations (24 CFR Part 570.201); and
- Meet a National Objective of the CDBG program (24 CFR Part 570.208).
The City of Beaumont may award their CDBG funds to the following entities and organizations:
- City Departments or Agencies;
- Non-Profit organizations subject to 26 U.S.C. 501 (c)(3) of the tax code; and
- Governmental agencies including the County, other Cities, Special Districts, and Tribes.
The City anticipates receiving $163,900 grant funds for the 2021-2022 program year.
