Community Development Block Grant

The Block Grant Division is part of the Neighborhood Improvement Department, and works with other city departments and community-based non-profit organizations to improve the quality of life for Gainesville's low- and moderate- income residents and neighborhoods.

The Block Grant Division provides overall management, oversight, coordination, and monitoring and evaluation of the CDBG and HOME Programs to ensure compliance with national objectives, federal grant regulations and local plans and policies.

The objectives of the CDBG and HOME Programs are to develop a viable urban community by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low- and moderate income.
