Community Development Block Grant

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

Since 2012, South Jordan City has received Community Development Block Grant funds through HUD. These federal funds are intended to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. The City’s CDBG program supports family and individual stability, self-reliance, and prosperity by administering these funds each year.

The City receives approximately $220,000 each year. Of each year’s grant, 15% is used for public services; 20% is used for administering the program. The remaining funds are used for hard costs projects that improve opportunities for low- and moderate-income persons, such as neighborhood improvements.
