The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a federal program administered through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that enables local governments to undertake a wide range of activities intended to create suitable living environments, provide decent affordable housing and create economic opportunities, primarily for persons of low and moderate income. Community organizations are invited to apply for CDBG funds through the City of Saint Paul every other year. Applications are accepted in odd numbered years for funding beginning in even numbered years. 

The application process for 2022-2023 CDBG funds is now open. The application can be found below and should be submitted to by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 19.

Each applicant will be required to make two presentations to the CIB Committee. The first presentation should provide an overview of the organization and the second should explain how the organization will use the proposed funding. Once an application has been submitted, you will be contacted regarding dates for each of these presentations. We expect to schedule presentations for mid to late April.
