Each year, the City of Bellevue receives community development block grants from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development for housing and community development activities that address priority needs identified by the city.
2023 Block Grant
The City of Bellevue is considering non-construction capital projects (e.g. architectural and engineering and other soft costs; single-family home rehabilitation; weatherization; acquisition or pre-acquisition costs) and Economic Development projects (e.g. microenterprise business assistance). The city is not seeking public services projects (e.g. homeless services, counseling, food banks, senior services) at this time. Projects must comply with HUD CDBG program regulations (24 CFR Part 570).
The application submission process for the 2023 Block Grant is now closed. Recipients will be announced in late November.
The Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan is prepared every five years as both a planning document and an application for Community Development Block Grant funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This plan covers the years 2020-2024 and is updated annually with single-year action plans.
The purpose of the plan is to review current and future trends in the community regarding housing and human services. The needs identified through this review help shape a set of objectives and strategies that will be used to allocate block grant funds. This plan is intended to complement and work within the structures of other Bellevue policy and planning documents, including the Comprehensive Plan, the Human Services Needs Update and the American Community Survey and Census data.
Block Grant Resident Participation Plan
The City of Bellevue has adopted a Citizen Participation Plan that sets forth the city's policies and procedures for resident participation. Bellevue's plan details the requirements and processes for public involvement and opportunities for comment regarding the planning and programming for the Community Development Block Grant program.
Annual Action Plans
The Annual Action Plan outlines the goals and objectives of the city's CDBG program and describes the projects (and expected outcomes) that will receive CDBG funding during the program year.
Performance and Evaluation Reports
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) reviews how CDBG dollars were spent and what outcomes were achieved during the program year.
