The Community Development Block Grant is a federal grant program run by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that provides communities with funds for infrastructure, neighborhood improvements, and other community planning and development programs. The grant helps the City to fund needed services in the community, including programs for seniors and disadvantaged youth.

HUD requires jurisdictions that receive CDBG funding to produce reports. These reports include:
- Annual Action Plans, which describe how funds will be spent in the upcoming program year.
- Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPER), which summarize how the funded activities performed over the past program year.
- Consolidated Plan is a longer-term (5-year) strategic plan that determines how the City will spend CDBG funds and other community development monies, and identifies strategies to respond to community identified needs throughout the next five years.
