Community Development Block Grant


Volunteers performing improvements to a senior's homeThe City of Yuma receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from HUD annually. Funds are used by the city and non-profit organizations for housing activities, public services, code enforcement, economic development, and other activities that improve living conditions for
low-and-moderate income people. Activities funded must be eligible under the CDBG Program, meet a national objective, and address priorities outlined in the City’s 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan.

Each year, with citizen participation, the City develops and submits Annual Action Plans and Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Reports (CAPER) to HUD.
