Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)


The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program allocates an estimated $1.9 million in federal funds per year to sub-recipients throughout the Spokane area to conduct activities that improve the lives and living conditions of low and moderate income county residents. The department allocates these funds each year through a Request For Proposal (RFP) process and provides technical assistance and oversight to sub-recipients to ensure compliance with all applicable federal requirements.
 
Sub-recipients use CDBG funds to improve local infrastructure, provide needed human services, improve parks and public facilities, increase recreational opportunities, and create jobs for low-income individuals

Community Development Oversight


Spokane County’s Community Services, Housing, and Community Development Department provides oversight of the CDBG and HOME Programs.

The Housing and Community Development Division provides the technical support necessary to comply with federal laws and regulations, plans for the implementation of the CDBG and HOME programs, allocate funds, establish goals and objectives, and carries out eligible activities.

The Housing and Community Development Division has developed the Annual Action Plan in partnership with the Housing and Community Development Citizen Advisory Committee (HCDAC), the municipal members of the Urban County Consortium, other county departments, area citizens, not-for-profit organizations, local businesses and others.

Program Funding


The Spokane County CDBG and HOME Programs fund eligible activities that address affordable housing, public facility, infrastructure, economic development, public services, and other needs of low-income persons throughout Spokane County.

This could not be done without citizen participation.
