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 CDBG Funding Guide (coming soon).
CDBG Funding is categorized by the following Program Initiatives:
- Building Rehabilitation

These Program Initiatives 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.

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.
