Community Development Block Grant Program

As of 2010, the City of Manhattan has been designated an entitlement community under the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Projects and activities funded through CDBG must provide benefit to low- and moderate-income persons and also must meet one of the program goals, including decent housing, suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities.

Consolidated Plan

Manhattan has developed a Consolidated Plan using a collaborative process whereby the community established community needs, program goals, and proposed projects and activities over five years. These have been incorporated into the Amended 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan also includes annual Action Plans, which provide concise summaries of the activities and programs that will take place during that specific year to address priority needs set forth in the Strategic Plan, including funding.

Action Plan

The Community Development Bock Grant (CDBG) 2015-2019 Consolidation Plan-Amended and the Annual Action Plans provide a basis and strategy for the use of funds allocated to the City of Manhattan by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  HUD provides the City with funding each year for CDBG Programs. 

The City of Manhattan adopts an action plan each year for CDBG funding. For 2017, the plan includes continued funding for the housing rehabilitation program, continued funding for public service agencies in the community, and funding for new public facility and neighborhood improvements.

Performance & Evaluation

The City of Manhattan prepares a consolidated annual performance and evaluation report (CAPER) each year to summarize the actions of each year's plan.
