Citrus Heights 2021 Community Development Block Grant Funding Application

Community Development Block Grant

The City of Citrus Heights receives an annual entitlement of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

Each year, the city awards a portion of its CDBG funds to non-profit agencies to provide activities that benefit low- and moderate-income areas and/or persons. Past programs that have received CDBG funds include meals for seniors, youth programs, homeless services, housing counseling, job employment, and domestic violence services. The application is not open to construction projects, rather intended for non-profit agencies. Please refer to the city’s 5-year Consolidated Plan for more information on the use of these funds. 

City staff will host a workshop for applicants who wish to hear more about the city’s CDBG program and what is required of an agency if selected for funding. The workshop will be held Friday, July 24 from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM via Zoom. Attendance is optional. If you are interested in attending the workshop email your contact information to Nicole Piva at
