Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program

The City of Yonkers Office of Community Development (OCD) is responsible for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for the City of Yonkers. The CDBG program provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. The CDBG Program is authorized under Title I, Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5301-20) and Section 7(d) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3535(d). The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to 1180 general units of local government and States.

The purpose of the CDBG Program is to provide decent housing, suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally benefiting persons of low and moderate income. Federal regulations require that at least one of the following national objectives are met by all CDBG funded activities:

  • The activity must principally benefit low and moderate income individuals.
  • The activity must aid in the prevention or elimination of slums/blight.
  • The activity must address an immediate, urgent threat to the health/welfare of the community, not addressed by other financial resources.

CDBG grant funds may be used for the acquisition, demolition, clearance, removal or rehabilitation of real property and blighted buildings; the construction, reconstruction or installation of public work projects, neighborhood facilities and other site improvements; relocation assistance; economic development; public services; preparation of the Consolidated Plan and yearly action plan and administrative costs.

Yonkers is in the process of preparing its Five-Year Consolidated Plan for submission to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The Consolidated Plan will serve as a blueprint for the expenditures of federal funds in Yonkers from 2/1/2020 to 1/31/2025.
 
As part of this five-year planning process, Yonkers is required to identify the housing and community development needs for low-moderate income persons and households, as well as persons with special needs such as disabilities, substance abuse, mental illness, HIV/AIDS, the elderly, etc.  Your participation in this planning process is important if the city is to develop an accurate strategy that addresses the priority needs of these groups and individuals.
