CDBG Point of Contact
Should you have questions regarding the CDBG application process, please contact:
Bryan Anderson, Supervising ECD Analyst
In 1974, the federal government enacted the Federal Housing and Community Development Act. Title I of the Act combined several funding programs into a single program called “Community development Block Grant” (CDBG). The CDBG program funding is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which provides communities with financial resources to address a range of community development needs for income-qualified areas and/or households.
San Bernardino County receives annual CDBG entitlement funding as an “urban county” and is responsible for implementing a CDBG Program for the unincorporated areas of the County as well as cities and towns that participate in the County’s CDBG Program.
The City of Yucaipa, through a cooperative agreement with the County of San Bernardino, receives a formula-based allocation which can be used to fund both public service programs and infrastructure improvements. Public services programs are capped at 15% of the total funding allocation.
Examples of CDBG-funded activities in Yucaipa include sidewalk improvements, public facilities improvements, youth services and recreational scholarships, adult literacy programs, support services for victims of violence, and case management services.
Organization is not an established 501(c)(3).
CDBG funding applications must be submitted through the online Web Application Management System (WAMS). For instructions and guidelines for the application for CDBG funding, please refer to the Community development and Housing website here. Applications received after the deadline of Monday, December 11, 2023, by or before 4:00 PM will not be accepted.
