The City of Wichita Falls Neighborhood Resources Division administers two primary entitlement grants from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). These grants are the Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Both funding sources are formula-based programs that primarily benefit low/moderate-income neighborhoods, non-profit organizations, persons, and households within the community.
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
The Community Development Block Grant Program is a flexible program that provides financial resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and a chance to expand economic opportunities, primarily for low- and moderate-income persons. Each activity must meet one of the following national objectives for the program: benefit low- and moderate-income persons, prevent or eliminate slum or blight, or address community development needs having a particular urgency becuase existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community for which other funding is not available.
