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 2018-19 CDBG funds are being used for the following programs:

Gilbert Emergency and Minor Home Repair Program
Heritage District Water Line replacement

Community Needs Assessment-Input & Ideas Needed!

The Town of Gilbert launched a Community Needs Assessment for Gilbert’s human services, being administered by The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management. The final report will be available in January 2020. 

The needs assessed include: cultural diversity, disabilities/special needs, domestic violence, families & individuals in crisis, homelessness, immigration, low to moderate income individuals and families, mental health, seniors/aging, substance abuse, and youth.

The needs assessment is to help Gilbert determine the current status of human service delivery as well as where the Town can progress in future service delivery by building on new ideas and solutions.  The study will gather, organize, and analyze data to identify the existing strengths, gaps, opportunities and resources.

Final product will include a report with recommendations for a plan of action to build on Gilbert's strengths, address needs and prioritize future services. The assessment includes but is not limited to long-term and short-term goals, program and fiscal considerations, prioritization of needed services, and program/ resource decision making.

The community needs assessment will assist the Town of Gilbert in strategic planning with the identification of data-driven opportunities and needs. The process itself helps to build community: 1. during focus groups where people learn from each other and help one another; 2. during the community forum where people are encouraged to seek solutions and effectively meet agency and community needs, 3. By illustrating the most helpful resources residents use.
