CDBG Weld County

CDBG Weld County logoWeld County has received an Urban County Designation from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This means the county is eligible to receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds once a Consolidated Plan is submitted and approved by HUD. An Urban County must be at least 200,000 in population not including Entitlement Cities. In Weld County there are several Entitlement Cities: Greeley, Brighton, Northglenn, Thornton, and Longmont.

It is anticipated the Consolidated Plan with Action Plan will be submitted to HUD this fall. Once a Consolidated Plan is approved, the county anticipates receiving around $960,200 each year from 2021 to 2023 and beyond. Weld County will establish a grant program for eligible participating jurisdictions. Entitlement Cities are not eligible to receive funds from Weld County’s grant program.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has outlined three clear national objectives to be addressed by the CDBG program. Projects funded with CDBG funds must address one of the following national objectives: principally benefit low-and moderate-income persons; prevent and/or eliminate slums and blight; and, address an urgent need. At least 70% of the CDBG funds received by Weld County must principally benefit low- and moderate-income persons.

Over the next few months, information regarding citizen participation and other CDBG related items will be posted here. Please check frequently for updates.
