City of Taylorsville
Grants to Taylorsville, Utah nonprofits, for-profits, and government agencies for community development projects that primarily benefit low- and moderate-income individuals. Funding is available for projects that increase affordable housing, revitalize neighborhoods, improve community services and facilities, and expand economic opportunities.
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a federally funded grant program designed to help communities with their greatest community development needs. Community projects that are supported by CDBG funds must be designed to principally benefit low and moderate-income families.
The program provides annual grants on a formula basis to entitled cities and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low and moderate-income persons.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires entitlement communities to create a Consolidated One Year Action Plan and a Consolidated Five Year Action Plan. These "action plans" are intended to ensure that City officials properly administrate CDBG funds in a manner that is consistent with community goals and compliant with federal restrictions. The City is required to hold at least two public hearings to receive comments on a proposed action plan prior to adoption. The Department of Housing and Urban Development must approve the adopted action plans prior to the release of CDBG allocations.
CDBG monies may be used for projects such as: property acquisition, public facilities and improvements, public services, relocation, residential rehabilitation, housing construction, homeownership assistance, and so on. Projects should help accomplish the goals set forth in the City’s 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan.
