Community Development Block Grant

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program 


The City of Crestview receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The City is considered an “entitlement community” with a prescribed formula for funding developed by HUD using select City demographic information.  This City receives this funding each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to allocate to community projects that support:

  • Decent Housing
  • Suitable Living Environment
  • Economic Opportunities

Applicant organizations must be either: 

  • A public agency (e.g., a City department) or 
  • a nonprofit entity with current 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. 
  • Individuals and for-profit organizations are not eligible to apply.

CDBG projects must be designed to benefit low- and moderate income persons, aid in the prevention or elimination of slums and blight or address an urgent (emergency) community development need.

The City of Crestview does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, family or religious status in administration of its programs, activities or services.
