What is CDBG?


CDBG is a program of the Federal Agency known as Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The city is funded annually with CDBG funds to be used for eligible activities falling under national objectives to serve income eligible persons that live within the legal boundaries of the City of Beaverton. The city chooses to provide its CDBG services through vetted nonprofits using an annual funding process. CDBG is guided by a five year plan prepared by the city in conjunction with Washington County, the lead agency, known as the Consolidated Plan (Con Plan). The Con Plan provides Beaverton residents and others the opportunity to weigh-in on eligible activities recommended by staff based upon needs research. An Annual Action Plan describes how objectives of the Con Plan will be carried out. Also annually CDBG staff prepares a report for HUD and the public outlining how well objectives have been met. The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report is referred to as the CAPER.

How does the city use its CDBG funds?


The city supports: homeless shelters/services, homeless prevention, youth and family programs, other public services, lowering the cost of homeownership, critical needs housing repair, small business development, and from time to time infrastructure and public facility development/improvement.
