Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Town of Gilbert receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Gilbert utilizes CDBG funds to provide various housing, infrastructure and public facility improvements.

CDBG funds must be used to meet a national objective:

1) To benefit low and moderate income persons;
2) To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight;
3) To meet community development needs having a particular urgency.

While CDBG funds are eligible for public service use, Gilbert opts to utilize all CDBG funds for capital improvement projects. FY 2019-2020 CDBG funds are being used for the following programs:
