Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
Each year since 1976, the City of Everett has received funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This funding comes in the form of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The Citizens Advisory Committee reviews the annual applications and makes funding recommendations to City Council.
Until July 1, 2019, we are asking all interested citizens to fill out an online survey to identify community needs for our next Consolidated Plan. You can access the survey through one of the language versions below:
- 2020 - 2024 Consolidated Plan
- 2019 Annual Action Plan
- 2018 Funding Round II
- Eligible Projects
- Program Year
The 2020 - 2024 Consolidated Plan is the guiding long range planning document for the Community Development Block Grant funds. Each Annual Action Plan supports the goals and priorities identified in the Consolidated Plan.The 2020 - 2024 Consolidated Plan is currently being drafted by staff. We are seeking community input on the needs and priorities for the plan. For more information, see below.

Each year CDBG funds are prioritized based on annual needs and goals. Agencies apply for funding for the upcoming Program Year (July to June calendar) based on the annual needs identified. The projects awarded with funding, along with the supporting goals, are described in the Annual Action Plan.
The 2019 Annual Action Plan was adopted by the City of Everett's City Council on March 20, 2019. The 2019 Program Year will begin on July 1, 2019 and end on June 30, 2020.
Once a Program Year has ended, a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is created to summarize the accomplishments of projects funded over the prior Program Year. The 2018 CAPER will be finished in September, 2019.

Federal funds are provided to local governments to assist in the provision of decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities primarily for persons of low and moderate income. CDBG funds must be used for activities determined by the federal government to be eligible and the local government determines which eligible use is appropriate in the community.
The City of Everett's Citizens Advisory Committee determines the public needs for projects annually, at a public hearing typically held in late summer/early fall. The public is invited to attend this hearing in helping to determine the priorities for funding for the next Program Year.
More information on eligible activities for CDBG projects can be found on the Community Development Block Grant Entitlement Program page, hosted and maintained by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The Program Year for the City of Everett's CDBG program runs from July 1 to June 30 the following year.
A Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) is announced following a public hearing on determining needs. The Citizens Advisory Committee reviews projects in the fall and provides recommendations to City Council on award recommendations. City Council will take action on the recommendations, which are then provided to HUD for final review. This process typically ends in the spring.
The City of Everett typically receives funding from HUD during the Fall for the Program Year in which the funds are to be used.
