CDBG program funds are used to provide grants and loans to UGLGs, usually with populations under 50,000, in support of economic or community development projects. Project proposals are considered and evaluated continuously based upon the MSF's approved Funding Guide.
CDBG Funding is categorized by the following Program Initiatives and have been determined to best serve the needs of the Non-Entitlement Area of the State of Michigan through the State’s Consolidated and Action Planning Process:
These plans can be viewed at the Michigan Consolidated Plan. As a part of the planning process, the MEDC has provided Citizens with reasonable opportunities to participate in the program’s design as defined in the State’s Citizen Participation Plan and the MEDC’s Public Participation Model.
Media releases regarding CDBG Grant Awards are posted on the MEDC Press Release webpage.
According to HUD, the Consolidated Plan creates the opportunity for strategic planning and citizen participation to take place in a comprehensive context; it allows local governments, community organizations and citizens to address the larger picture in which these programs operate, offering the State a better chance to shape the various programs into effective coordinated strategies.
The public comment period will commence on June 22, 2020 and end on June 29, 2020 for the Substantial Amendment to the 2019 Michigan Consolidated Annual Action Plan to include CARES Act Funding (CDBG Phase 2).
