The City of Racine facilitates Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), Federal funds that are used to create a livable and sustainable city. Grants are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for local programs that assist low- and moderate-income households, create jobs, and revitalize neighborhoods.
Racine receives Community Development Block Grants from HUD as an Entitlement Community authorized under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974.
Block Grant funding is approved by the Community Development Committee.
CDBG funds the following categories of community development activities within the City of Racine:
Public Services: The City of Racine prioritizes public services in the categories of Youth Services, Job Skills/Training, and Safety/Crime Prevention Stability. Public Services funding is limited to 15% of the City’s total annual CDBG funding grant.
Economic Development: Both microenterprises (five or fewer employees) and small businesses are funded by CDBG for technical assistance and direct business loans.
Infrastructure/Blight Reduction: The City funds road reconstruction, street trees, and blighted house demolition through CDBG funding.
Housing Rehabilitation: Some of the City’s housing rehabilitation loans for low-income homeowners and multi-family apartments are funded through CDBG.
