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 County's Urban County area;
- 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 County of Riverside will only accept CDBG applications from the cooperating cities listed above. The cooperating cities 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.
All eligible organizations must submit their application to the City of Beaumont by October 25, 2019 at 12:00 p.m.
The Beaumont City Council will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at approximately 6:00 p.m. at 550 E. 6th Street, Beaumont, California 92223, to receive testimony and comments from all interested persons regarding approval of use of Fiscal Year 2020-2021 CDBG Funds, a consideration by the City Council to review all CDBG application submitted from eligible organizations and City projects for the use of CDBG funds within the City.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE CITY COUNCIL HAS REQUIRED THAT ALL APPLICANTS MUST APPLY FOR AND RECEIVE FUNDS FOR THE SAME PROGRAM FROM THE COUNTY OR OTHER PARTICIPATING CITY AS A CONDITION OF RECEIVING FUNDS FROM THE CITY OF BEAUMONT.
