Community Development Block Grant Program

Community Development Block Grant logoSpokane 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, the municipal members of the Urban County Consortium, other county departments, area citizens, not-for-profit organizations, local businesses and others.

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.
