Community Development Block Grant

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. Beginning in 1974, the CDBG program is one of the longest continuously run programs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The CDBG program provides annual grants on a formula basis to 1209 general units of local government and States. St Johns County, in cooperation with the City of St Augustine Beach, met the population requirement in 2015 to be considered an Entitlement Community by HUD. The CDBG entitlement program allocates annual grants to larger cities and urban counties to develop viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and opportunities to expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.

Substantial Amendment to 2021-2022 Annual Action Plan

The Public Service Kids Safe Zone has requested funds to continue to provide free after-school mentoring, tutoring, and homework assistance to low- and moderate- (L/M) income families in the West Augustine Community Redevelopment Area. The program benefits parents who have issues affording quality after-school educational opportunities and care. Therefore, it is proposed to re-allocate $33,405.25 in funding from the Planning and Administration Activity, which are unused funds, and apply it to the Public Service Project-Kids Safe Zone.
