Overview The City of Flagstaff receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG funds are provided on a formula
basis to entitled communities to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing,
suitable living environments, and/or by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low and
moderate income persons. In addition, activities funded with CDBG funds also must meet the
goals, strategies and objectives identified in the City’s FY 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan.
After an extensive public participation process, where community proposals for funding are
received and ranked, the Flagstaff City Council sets CDBG priorities and decides the ultimate
use for the CDBG grant, to fund projects within the Flagstaff city limits. This year's funded
activities/projects can be found in the Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Action Plan.
