Community Development Block Grant Program

As of 2010, the City of Manhattan has been designated an entitlement community under the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Projects and activities funded through CDBG must provide benefit to low- and moderate-income persons and also must meet one of the program goals, including decent housing, suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities.

2017 Action Plan Development


The City of Manhattan is developing the 2017 Action Plan. The plan may include improvements, renovation or construction of non-residential historic buildings, ADA improvements to public facilities, senior centers, homeless facilities, youth centers, parks and recreational facilities, flood drainage improvements, street improvements, sidewalks, child care centers or any other public facility that serves low-income demographics.

Public services are also included in the plan. The application period is closed.

Consolidated Plan


Manhattan has developed a Consolidated Plan using a collaborative process whereby the community established community needs, program goals, and proposed projects and activities over five years. These have been incorporated into the Amended 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan also includes annual Action Plans, which provide concise summaries of the activities and programs that will take place during that specific year to address priority needs set forth in the Strategic Plan, including funding.

Action Plan


The City of Manhattan adopts an action plan each year for CDBG funding. For 2016, the plan includes continued funding for the housing rehabilitation program, continued funding for public service agencies in the community, and funding for new public facility and neighborhood improvements.

Performance & Evaluation


The City of Manhattan prepares a consolidated annual performance and evaluation report (CAPER) each year to summarize the actions of each year's plan.
