Community Development Block Grants (CDBG)

CDBG is a federal program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. The funds are used to develop viable communities by promoting decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate- income persons. Eligibility is determined by household income compared to the median household income in the region, adjusted for household size. The City of Santee submits an application for CDBG funds annually.

Five-Year Consolidated Plan

The Five-Year Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive planning document that identifies the City’s overall priority needs for housing and community development and outlines a five-year strategy to address those needs. The plan also provides a framework for annual decisions on the use of CDBG funds and serves as a guide for local agencies seeking federal, state and local financial assistance under alternative funding sources.

Annual Action Plan

The City’s Annual Action Plan establishes priorities for the upcoming program year and identifies programs and activities that have been awarded funding to address the city’s priority needs.
