Federal Program | Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
The City of Milpitas’ Housing Department and City Council awards funding to local non-profit agencies that serve the Milpitas community through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. Non-profits that help to improve physical, economic, and social conditions to low- and moderate- income Milpitas residents are encouraged to apply.
Agencies may be awarded a Grant based upon the target population and services they provide. Eligible non-profit organizations and projects should meet one of three National Objectives, as identified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These Objectives include:
- Benefit Low and/or Moderate Income Persons
- Prevention or Elimination of Slums and Blight
- Urgent Need
Additionally, the City of Milpitas has prepared and adopted a Five Year Consolidated Plan (2017-2022) to establish priorities for the use of CDBG grant funds in order to benefit and improve the lives of Milpitas Residents. Organizations whose goals and services align with the priorities of the City will be prioritized for selection and funding.
