Fund Usage
It is always important to remember that, as a federal program, CDBG funds must comply with the following three National Objectives. Eligible activities will:

  • Aid in the prevention or elimination of slum and blight; or
  • Provide benefit to low and moderate-income persons; or
  • Meet a certain community development need having a particular urgency

2017 Public Workshop History in Preparation for the CDBG 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan:
The City of Coeur d’Alene has held two public participation workshops in preparation for its 5-Year Consolidated Planning Period which will guide the use of funds for its annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, issued from the Housing and Urban Development Agency (HUD). These public workshops included discussions on funds spent in past program years and encouraged citizen input about current needs and spending priorities.

The public participation workshops were held on November 2, 2017, at the Coeur d’Alene Library, and November 30, at the Boys and Girls Club.
