Grants to Albany, Oregon nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and eligible for-profit organizations for public services that improve communities and expand economic opportunities. Funding is intended for services and activities that primarily benefit low- and moderate-income residents.

Note: HUD presumes certain groups to be principally low- or moderate-income, so activities that exclusively serve these groups will meet the Benefit to Low- and Moderate-Income Persons national objective without having to demonstrate income eligibility. These groups include: abused children, battered spouses, elderly persons, severely disabled adults, homeless persons, illiterate adults, persons living with HIV/AIDS, and migrant farm workers.

CDBG activities must be in accordance with the City of Albany 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan provided below and in compliance with CDBG program objectives to develop viable urban communities by providing the following, principally for the benefit of low- and moderate-income (LMI) residents:

  • Decent housing,
  • A suitable living environment,
  • Eliminate slums and blight, and
  • Expanded economic opportunity.
