CDBG Application

Applications are due by 5:00 PM on Monday, February 21, 2022 by email to mtaylor@cityofmalden.org.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a federal grant program that provides funding for cities to address the causes and consequences of poverty, principally through activities that benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) persons. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awards CDBG grants annually to cities like Malden. The City’s Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD) administers Malden’s CDBG program.

CDBG and HOME Schedule

CDBG funds can be used for a wide range of activities that benefit LMI households, including physical improvements, social services, and affordable housing development and rehabilitation. LMI households are households at or below 80% of the area median income (AMI). Activities may also be designed to serve specific groups that are presumed to be LMI, including abused children, the elderly, domestic violence survivors, people who are homeless, adults with disabilities, adults who are illiterate, people with AIDS, and migrant farm workers. Federal laws and regulations determine which activities are CDBG-eligible. 

The application is for organizations seeking CDBG funding for Malden public services and physical improvements. Public services are direct social services administered by nonprofit agencies and organizations for the benefit of LMI Malden residents. Physical improvements include parks, public facilities, and infrastructure improvements that primarily benefit LMI Malden residents.

Please complete the application carefully, as incomplete applications may not be considered. 

For further information, please contact Community Development Director Alex Pratt at apratt@cityofmalden.org or 781-324-5720 x5728.
