The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The CDBG program works to ensure decent affordable housing, to provide services to the most vulnerable in our communities, and to create jobs through the expansion and retention of businesses. CDBG is an important tool for helping local governments tackle serious challenges facing their communities. The CDBG program has made a difference in the lives of millions of people and their communities across the Nation. To learn more about the program, please visit HUD's website.

The City of Garden Grove is a recipient of ESG funds annually from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and allocates the resources to subrecipients to develop viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and opportunities to expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons

The following is a list of service providers who have received 2016/2017 CDBG funds from the City of Garden Grove. Additionally, the City has plans to allocate future CDBG funds for capital projects, small business programs, public services, and economic development. More information will be provided in the future.
