Community Development Block Grants - Alaska

SkagwayThe goals of the Alaska Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) are to provide financial resources to Alaskan communities for public facilities and planning activities which address issues detrimental to the health and safety of local residents and to reduce the costs of essential community services. The program may also fund Special Economic Development activities which result in the creation of jobs for low and moderate income persons.

CDBG competitive grants are single-purpose project grants; maximum of $850,000 per community. There are three basic funding categories: community development, planning and Special Economic Development.

CDBG programs utilize the resources of the Community Development Block Grant program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Approximately $2 million is available for competitive grants for the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 12 grant cycle.

Any Alaskan municipal government (except Anchorage) is eligible to apply for the grants. Non-profits may apply as co-applicants for these pass-through funds. In a typical year, applications are distributed to municipalities in late fall, and awards are made the following spring. Federal regulations require 51 percent of the persons who benefit from a funded project must be low and moderate income persons as defined by HUD.
