The City of Idaho Falls Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is administered by the Planning Department. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Over $350,000.00 is received each year to benefit low and moderate income (LMI) persons or prevent conditions of slum and blight.

Each year the city invites non-profit agencies and city departments to submit project ideas for the grant funds. City Council considers the projects to be included in the Annual Action Plan. Once HUD approves the Plan the projects are funded and initiated.

For questions, please contact Lisa Farris. If communication aids or services or other physical accommodations are needed to participate or access this meeting, please contact Ann Peterson or Lisa Farris within 24 hours of the scheduled meeting so we may accommodate your needs. 

2022 CDBG Applicants

Due to the 2022-23 federal budget not being approved, we do not have an allocation amount for the 2022 CDBG plan year. To maintain our place on the City Council agendas, the dates for (2) of the tentatively scheduled CDBG public hearings have been changed so we may continue to move through the process and submit our 2022 CDBG Annual Action Plan and our 2021 CDBG CAPER (annual report) to HUD on time.

(2) Dates changes: 

1. Public hearing for 2021 CDBG CAPER (annual report) moved to April 28, 2022 at 7:30 pm. A 15- day public comment period will run April 28 - May 13,2022.

2. Public hearing for 2022 CDBG Annual Action Plan moved to May 12, 2022 at 7:30 pm. A 30- day public comment will run May 12 - June 12, 2022. During this public hearing, applicants will be invited to talk briefly about their proposed projects.

Both public hearings will be held at the same location (City Council Chambers/City Annex Bldg.) located at 680 Park Ave.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work through the process.
