CDBG Poster

The City of Carrollton receives an annual grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The grant helps fund programs that assist Carrollton residents of low- and moderate-income.

Throughout the Program Year of 2015, Carrollton has received approximately $14 million dollars for projects and grant administration. Additionally, the amount used for grant administration, as a percentage of the total grant, is one of the lowest in the region. Efficient use of the grant is important to maximize the benefits to low- and moderate-income residents.

CDBG Document Library

As a recipient of CDBG funds, the City is required by Federal law to produce several reports. These require Adobe Reader to view. A note about the program year designation: HUD's calendar does not match the "standard" calendar year; program year 2011 actually starts on October 1, 2011 and ends on September 30, 2012.

Consolidated Plan

CDBG 01The HUD-required Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive effort to plan for Carrollton's long-term community development needs and help define a long-term strategy to use HUD funds. Within the document is an assessment of the City's needs, programs, policies, and application for federal assistance. This is the second such plan to be developed, and was adopted July 6, 2004. In 2009, the City of Carrollton hired BBC Research and Consulting Group to prepare the City's 2009-2014 Consolidated Plan. A copy of previous and current plans can be accessed below:
