Overview

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The City of Rocklin receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the form of Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) each year. The funds are used, in part, to assist residents with securing decent housing, benefit the elderly, and expand economic opportunities for those of low and moderate incomes.

In April of 2020, the Rocklin City Council resolved to award a total of approximately $42,000 in CDBG funds for Fiscal Year 2020/2021 to four local non-profit organizations serving the people of Rocklin. The four organizations who will receive funding include: The Salvation Army, Seniors First, Stand Up Placer, and Foothills Habitat for Humanity.

The City of Rocklin is currently planning for the use of fiscal year 2021-22 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funds. The City has yet to be notified of its 2021-22 award. The City expects to receive an amount roughly equal to the 2020-21 award of $279,000. The City of Rocklin is required to prepare an Annual Action Plan which provides information on the needs of low- and moderate-income residents and eligible target areas of the City during the period between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. The Plan also describes the activities that the City will undertake to meet those needs with the limited funding.  Should the actual award amount differ from the current estimate, the City will make proportional adjustments to all areas of allocation.
