Serving northeast missouri counties
Every year, the State of Missouri enters into a contractual relationship with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) accepting receipt of the Community Development Block Grant funds. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program offers grants to small Missouri communities to improve local facilities, address critical health and safety concerns, and develop a greater capacity for growth. Funds are offered for projects that can range from housing and street repairs to industrial loans and job training. State CDBG funds are only available to non-entitlement areas (incorporated municipalities under 50,000 and counties under 200,000 in population).
