Grants to Wyoming counties and municipalities for economic and community development. Applicants must consult with Fund staff and provide a copy of the application prior to submission. Funding is intended for activities that relate to handicapped accessibility, community facilities, public infrastructure, economic infrastructure, downtown development, and housing facility programs. Projects that indicate financial support from other sources will be given preference over those that have no other source of financing.

Wyoming is given broad authority to design and structure a program to meet local community and economic development needs. However, any project funded with CDBG funds must meet one of three U.S. Housing and Urban Development-imposed national objectives:
- Benefit to low- and moderate-income families
- Elimination of slums and blight
- Projects that meet an urgent community development need that pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community.

Project Objectives:
- Suitable Living Environment: Activities that benefit communities, families, and individuals by addressing issues in their living environment
- Decent Housing: Housing activities that meet individual family or community needs; should not be used for activities where housing is an element of a larger effort
- Economic Opportunity: Activities related to economic development, commercial revitalization, and job creation.

Project Outcome:
- Availability/Accessibility: Activities that make services, infrastructure, housing and shelter available and accessible. Note that accessibility does not only refer to physical barriers.
- Affordability: Activities that provide affordability in a variety of ways. It can include creation or maintenance of affordable housing, basic infrastructure hookups, or services such as transportation or daycare.
- Sustainability: Activities that promote livable or viable communities and neighborhoods by providing services or by reviving slums or blighted areas.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Only counties and incorporated cities and towns are eligible to apply for CDBG funds. Local governments may apply on behalf of other units of government, non-profit and for-profit businesses and special interest groups.

The cities of Casper and Cheyenne are not eligible because they are entitlement cities and receive CDBG funds directly from HUD. However, Laramie and Natrona counties may apply on behalf of a project located within the municipal boundaries of Cheyenne or Casper, respectively, if it can be demonstrated the benefits of the project are available on a county-wide basis.

Joint applications from two or more eligible applicants are permissible.

Pre-Application Information:

A pre-approval application should be emailed prior to the due date, to the applicant’s Regional Director for signature. (See page 9 of Application Checklist for Regional contact information.) Completed pre-applications are due no later than March 1, 2019.

You will be notified if your project is eligible and if you may proceed applying for CDBG grant funding. If pre-approval is accepted and application is submitted, funding is not guaranteed.

Email the National Objective Pre-approval and any required support documentation to Stephanie Horton or Brayden Connour (see details in Contact Information below).

Applications will be accepted until June 1, 2019. Applications will be reviewed by the WBC Board during its September 2019 meeting. There may be another application round if funds allow.

WBC staff reserve the right to request additional information as part of the application review process.

All applications must be accompanied by a resolution passed by the city or town council or the county commissioners and signed by the chief elected official.

Applicants are required to solicit citizen input through a properly publicized public hearing before submission of an application.
