Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) allocates funds used by the Kansas Department of Commerce for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Housing Rehabilitation program.

The CDBG housing program is specifically designed to provide housing rehabilitation for low- to moderate-income individuals.

The City of McPherson is applying for a $300,000 Community Development Block Grant during 2019. Funds will be used for a maximum of 12 home rehabilitations and several demolitions. A maximum expenditure of $25,000 is allowed on each eligible property associated with the rehabilitation project. A maximum of $6,000 is allowed for blighted structure removal. Review 2019 CDBG Documents for additional details.

Pre-applications are an important part of the process. The City of McPherson must document the need for rehabilitation by identifying potential willing participants in the area. Eligible residents located in the target area are invited to submit a pre-application no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, July 1, 2019. APPLY NOW

If the grant is approved, this would be the City's third CDBG housing project.
