2011 FEDERAL BUDGET LIKELY TO CUT CDBG FUNDING

Cities expecting Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds should anticipate seeing less federal funding in the upcoming grant cycle.  Last week, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released a publication titled “Frequently Asked Questions on CDBG Funding in the Fiscal Year 2011 Budget.”  In it, HUD estimated that CDBG funding will be roughly $3.343 billion in Fiscal Year 2011, which represents a 15.15-percent reduction in comparison to Fiscal Year 2010.  To access the FAQ on CDBG funding, please visit
