The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at HUD. The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to general units of local government and states.
CDBG Entitlement Program provides annual grants on a formula basis 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.
Program Year 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan Survey
The City of Lauderhill is in the process of assessing our affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, to make data-driven, placed-based investment decisions for the development of our new Five-Year 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan. As an entitlement community, our consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from two of the Community Planning and Development (CPD) formula block grant programs, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Programs (HOME).
Citizen participation is strongly encouraged. We invite our residents and stakeholders to provide feedback through the survey links below on the critical needs in our community until April 26, 2020.
The City of Lauderhill carries out eligible activities administered through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program in a manner consistent to the approved Consolidated Plan. The City’s Consolidated Plan addressed the following National Objectives:
