Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The annual CDBG funding allocation received by the City varies from year-to-year, depending on a number of factors. Federal regulations limit the amount of funding that can be used for public services programs and projects to a maximum 15% of the annual funding allocation. Additionally, up to 20% of the annual allocation is set aside by the City for program administration. The balance of the funds is allocated for all other CDBG activity categories. The City makes these funds available on a competitive basis to eligible outside agencies and City Departments for qualified activities that meet one or more of the CDBG National Objectives and which further the goals and objectives of the Five-year Consolidated Plan. Please note that the City of Perris gives first priority to City-managed programs and projects for funding.
