Community Development Block Grant

Draft 2020 Annual Action Plan Fourth Amendment Available for Public Review and Comment

The City of Farmington proposes to reallocate Community Development Block Grant-CV (CDBG-CV) funding previously obligated to the acquisition of property located at 115 Quince Street and the balance of funds obligated to the acquisition of two Alternative Response Units in the 2020 Annual Action Plan. Pursuant to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations and the City of Farmington Citizen Participation Plan amended and adopted in 2020, these changes are considered to be a “Substantial Amendment” to the 2020 Annual Action Plan and requires specific citizen participation action before the change may be approved by the City Council and submitted to HUD. To allow community members the opportunity to review and comment on the proposed changes, the City will publish a public hearing notice in the Farmington Daily Times on January 11, 2023 informing residents of the availability of the fourth Substantial Amendment document for public review and comment for a period of 30 days January 11, 2023 to February 12, 2023. The public review and comment period concludes with a public hearing and the amendment adoption before City Council on February 28, 2023.

Federal Grant Funding

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Division of the Community Development Department administers the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s CDBG Program that provides for approximately $350,000 of federal grant funding in the community annually to address the needs of low or moderate income families and individuals.

The City of Farmington receives Community Development Block Grant Entitlement funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG funds are used for a variety of public services and capital projects to benefit targeted neighborhoods and low- and moderate-income families. Each year two important public documents are created, the Annual Action Plan that allocates funds to individual projects, and the Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) that documents how the funds have been expended. CDBG staff manages the projects, monitors their performance, and reports their accomplishments to HUD.



The City of Farmington uses Community Development Block Grant funds for both Public Service support and critical infrastructure.  The City of Farmington has awarded an average of $55,000 a year in CDBG funds to support public service organizations in our community with the following timeline:

  • City Council may choose to allocated additional General Fund dollars for award through this process.


  • Request for Proposals are due.


  • RFPs are reviewed by an Evaluation Committee. 
  • Ranked Public Service organizations give a brief presentation to the council.
