The Housing and Community Development Department is responsible for administering and coordinating activities relating to the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. Each year the City of Dubuque receives approximately $1.2 million in federal CDBG funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The funds are used for eligible activities in the areas of housing, economic development, neighborhood and public services, public facilities, and planning/administration.
Federal regulations require the funds be used primarily to assist persons of low and moderate income, reduce slum and blight, or an urgent need.
For additional information, please contact the Housing and Community Development Department at 563.589.4239.
For more information about CDBG regulations, please see the HUD website
