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 2016-17 CDBG funds are being used for the following programs:
Gilbert Emergency and Minor Home Repair Program
Page Park Center Building Master Plan
Each year Gilbert prepares and submits an annual action plan for use of CDBG funds after public review. View the final 2016-2017 Second Year Annual Action Plan.
