City of Missoula Entitlement Programs (Updated 8/28/12)

The City of Missoula is an Entitlement Community for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and a Participating Jurisdiction for the Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) program. These grant programs, funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), provide annual grants to the City to use for housing, economic development, public facilities and infrastructure, and public services primarily to assist low and moderate income persons. Community needs and the proposed activities to meet those needs for CDBG and HOME are outlined in a five-year Consolidated Plan and an annual Action Plan.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

Program Information:

Each year the City of Missoula conducts a competitive application process to award approximately $500,000 available for housing and community development projects designed to assist low-income residents. The money is provided to the City by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The City solicits applications each fall from individuals and community groups who can address federal objectives which include expanding the supply of housing affordable to low-income families and individuals, offering other types of assistance to low- and moderate-income persons, eliminating slums and blight, or meeting urgent community development needs. Missoula’s specific objectives for its CDBG allocations can be found in the Missoula Consolidated Plan, adopted by City Council in February 2009. Copies of the plan may be requested by emailing grants@co.missoula.mt.us.
