Community Development Block Grant Program
Manchester CDBG Program Manager: Heather Guerette , 860-647-3106
The Town of Manchester Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) , provides an annual grant which supports a variety of projects and activities to benefit Manchester residents. The town re-entered the CDBG program in 1991. Communities participating in the CDBG program have a great deal of discretion regarding the use of grant funds as long as proposed projects and activities:
- meet one or more national objectives;
- are eligible according to HUD guidelines; and
- at least 70% of the grant funds expended benefit low and moderate income residents.
The Town has adopted the following community development goal to determine how CDBG funds will be allocated:
To preserve, improve and revitalize our older neighborhoods, where housing and other needs are greatest and broadest, so they will continue to be livable and attractive neighborhoods.
