Community Development Block Grant Application Process

Beginning in January every year, the City of Woodland solicits proposals for eligible CDBG activities.  Annually, the City’s CDBG program receives approximately $400,000.  The total of all public service grants cannot exceed 15% of the total grant.  Administration (or related activities) cannot exceed 20% of the total grant.  Thus, approximately 65% of the total grant can be expended on other activities, primarily what the City calls “public facilities and public improvement” projects. 

The notice of funding availability, public service application and construction application, and program year calendar are available below.
