Community Development Programs
The State of Utah Community Development Block Grant program provides grants to cities and towns of fewer than 50,000 in population and counties of fewer than 200,000 people. The entitlement cities of Clearfield, Layton, Logan, Ogden, Orem, Provo, Salt Lake City, Sandy, St. George, Taylorsville, West Jordan, West Valley City, and the county of Salt Lake have similar programs designated for their areas and are not eligible for the State Small Cities CDBG program. Potential applicants should contact those entities directly.
The purpose of the Small Cities program is "to assist in developing viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate incomes."
The 2012 program year is the 31st in which the Small Cities CDBG program has been administered by the State of Utah. The Utah program is unique compared to other states which utilize a more centralized funds-distribution process. In Utah, the program is based on public input through local governments which establish priorities for local projects consistent with state and federal guidelines.
The "How-To-Apply" workshops which detail the application requirements for 2012 funding will be conducted in the months of October and November 2012 throughout the seven regions in the state. Please see below for the schedule of when these workshops will occur. Please note that if you are interested in receiving funding, you must attend a workshop in your region for your application to be considered. For any questions regarding the workshops, you may contact our office at (801) 526.9406.
