PY 2024 Union County CDBG Program
Union County intends to apply to the Ohio Department of Development for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities Program and other related state and federally funded programs administered by the State of Ohio. The County is eligible for several different types of PY 2024 programs providing the County meets applicable program requirements. These programs include but are not limited to the CDBG Community Development Allocation Program; Neighborhood Revitalization, Critical Infrastructure and Downtown Revitalization Programs; Economic Development and Public Infrastructure Program; Residential Public Infrastructure Program; and Discretionary Program. The State of Ohio anticipates it will receive approximately $64 million from HUD to distribute on a statewide basis, based on the Consolidated Plan submitted to HUD. The Consolidated Plan contains additional information on the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities Program, a federally funded program administered by the State and funded by HUD.
