Community Development

Eligible activities for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding must meet one or more of the national objectives set by HUD and benefit the low- and moderate-income persons of Miami-Dade County.

CDBG funds are designed to support projects that:

  • Benefit low and moderate income persons;
  • Are integrated in a long range community strategy;
  • Leverage further private and public partnership, and;
  • Enhance deteriorated residential and business districts.

The projects to be funded through the various programs are classified in four categories:

CDBG program funds can be used to build community facilities, roads, parks; to repair or rehabilitate housing, to provide new or increased public services to local residents or to fund initiatives that generate or retain new jobs.

Miami-Dade County received $4,884,311 in Community Development Block Recovery (CDBG-R) funds in 2009 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. CDBG-R funds will be used to promote community development and neighborhood stabilization in low-to-moderate income areas.

As a result of Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma, Congress appropriated Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding under the Military Construction Appropriations and Emergency Hurricane Supplemental Appropriation Act to five states for disaster relief, long term recovery, and the restoration of infrastructure related to these storms. Disaster Recovery CDBG (CDBG DRI) funds were used for infrastructure and housing repairs and improvements.

Substantial Amendments

From time to time it may become necessary to reallocate funds from previously-approved activities to other activities in order to insure timely completion.

Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Areas (NRSAs)

Neighborhood Focus NRSAs are represented by Community Advisory Committees (CACs) and are targeted to receive CDBG-funded neighborhood-specific programs and services.

Request for Applications

Miami-Dade County, through the Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD) department, solicits applications under a Consolidated Request for Application (RFA) process to fund activities with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)

The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Programs is made available to the public each year for review and comments.

Community Development Resource Links

Partner Procedures
