Program Overview

The City of West Sacramento receives an annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The goal of the CDBG Program is to develop and maintain viable urban communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities for persons from low- and moderate-income households.

In accordance with program guidelines, the City must develop a five-year Consolidated Plan and an Annual Action Plan for every year of the Consolidated Plan that outlines the goals and objectives regarding how the City will expend its yearly CDBG allocation. Links to these plans and the program's documents can be found below. 

The City of West Sacramento has been awarded CDBG-CV funding through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). West Sacramento's CDBG-CV allocation is $274,906.

The Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus Response Supplement (CDBG-CV) will support the critical community needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDBG-CV Program has three national objectives. Each proposed activity must meet one of these national objectives:

  • Provide a direct benefit(s) to low to moderate income persons
  • Prevent or eliminate slum or blight
  • Address an urgent need or problem within the community

Funds awarded under the CDBG-CV Program must be utilized to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus. Allowable projects and purchases include, but are not limited to, housing assistance payments for rent, mortgage, and utilities, meal and medicine delivery, job training, health services for infectious disease response (testing, diagnostics or other services), purchase equipment, supplies, and materials necessary to carry-out public service that is related to the coronavirus. Staff is currently preparing proposals for City Council to consider on the best use of the City's CDBG-CV funds. This page will be updated once the City Council approves CDBG-CV allocations.
