Community Development Block Grant Programs

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding is received annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The CDBG program funds public service agencies and infrastructure projects that serve low and moderate-income city residents who are U.S. Citizens or documented immigrants.

Infrastructure

Eligible infrastructure projects include, but are not limited to, ADA improvements, building rehabilitation, and transportation improvements. Funding may be used for labor, supplies, and materials. To apply for a CDBG Infrastructure Grant, a Letter of Intent (LOI) must be submitted to the City of Las Cruces to determine eligibility. This process starts in November or early December each year.
