Grants to Connecticut nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible locations to meet the needs of the local community. Funding is intended to assist with programs and projects that benefit residents of low- and moderate incomes, including housing and activities addressing urgent needs. Funds must serve residents in the Town of Greenwich.

The Community Development Office manages the Town's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.  CDBG is an annual entitlement grant program through which federal U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funding is allocated to municipal and area non-profit organizations for the purpose of addressing the needs of the local community. Funding is intended to support programs and organizations working to create viable neighborhoods, decent housing, suitable living environments, and expanded economic opportunities for persons of low- and moderate-incomes.

Proposed activities must comply with CDBG eligibility requirements. At least 51% of the funded activity participants or beneficiaries must meet the low- or moderate-income guidelines as determined by HUD for the Stamford-Norwalk CT Metro FMR.  The current income guidelines/limits can be found on page 2 of the CDBG Application in Supporting Documents below.

For an application to be considered for funding, the following qualifications must be met:
  • The proposed activity must comply with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations in meeting one of the national objectives of the CDBG Program – benefit to low- and moderate-income persons, aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight, meet a need having a particular urgency;
  • The proposed activity must be listed as an “eligible” activity in the CDBG regulations; and
  • The proposed activity must address a priority need.

Eligible projects and activities include, but are not limited to, public service activities, rehabilitation and new construction activities, real property acquisition (land/building) activities, new core programs, support or expansion of existing core programs, and new/expansion/existing support programs.
