Community Development Block Grant


CDBG Poster

The City of Carrollton, as an entitlement community, 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.

Through Program Year 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.
