Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

Overview

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.

This 2019 Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) covers the reporting period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. The Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive planning document that serves as the guiding document for the use of funds from the HUD Community Development Block Grant entitlement program in the areas of housing and community development.
