CDBG

dhudThe City of Dunkirk is a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement community grantee.  This grant is provided to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.

Entitlement communities are required to develop their own programs and funding priorities. However, the City of Dunkirk is required to give maximum feasible priority to activities which benefit low- and moderate-income persons. As a grantee, the City may also carry out activities which aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight. Additionally, grantees may fund activities when the grantee certifies that the activities meet other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community where other financial resources are not available to meet such needs. CDBG funds may not be used for activities which do not meet these broad national objectives.
