CDBG Program Background

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program was signed into law in 1974 as the result of efforts to: 1) consolidate into one ‘block grant’ many categorical grants pertaining housing and community development, and 2) provide more control of the funds to state and local government. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is responsible for the CDBG Program. State, county, and local governments (grantees) may apply to HUD for CDBG funds. Funds are managed by grantees and are generally allocated to sub-recipients to fulfill eligible activities. The primary purpose of the CDBG program is to assist low and moderate income individuals and households by creating suitable living environments, providing decent housing, and creating economic opportunities.

HUD requires that a grantee (the City) have a 5-year strategic plan (Consolidated Plan). The Consolidated Plan includes community needs, housing analysis, resource identification, and goals. Annual Action Plans are submitted to identify annual projects, activities, and expected outcomes that serve to fulfill the goals of the Consolidated Plan. A Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is also required yearly to report on the performance of the previous year.

South Jordan City’s CDBG Program

South Jordan City became a grantee of CDBG funds in 2012 with HUD’s approval of the City’s 2012-2016 Consolidated Plan. In 2015 the City updated its Consolidated Plan (2015-2019 Consolidated Plan). Beginning in Winter 2019, the City will prepare its 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan. The City receives approximately $220,000 per year in CDBG funds. Of the total funds, HUD allows up to 15% to be used for public services and up to 20% for administration and planning. South Jordan expects to utilize the maximum allowable funds for public services and administration/planning each year. The majority of the remaining funds have regularly been used to address improvements and repairs at the City’s Senior Center and accessibility deficiencies at public facilities.
