Community Development Block Grant Program
ABOUT THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM
We receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding on an annual basis from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As part of the requirements to receive this funding, we prepare and submit a Consolidated Plan (Con Plan) every five years and an Action Plan every year to HUD. The Con Plan and Action Plan helps us to assess the City’s housing, community, and economic development needs, identify available resources, and outline a strategy on how the City plans to address those needs and allocate CDBG funds. Here is the 2017-2018 CDBG Action Plan.
CDBG 2018-2019 Action Plan
The City of Union City invites public comment on the draft 2018-2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Annual Action Plan (“The Draft Plan”). The Draft Plan identifies CDBG funding priorities and describes the activities the City will undertake to address the City’s housing, community, and economic development needs in fiscal year 2018-2019. The Draft Plan is available for a 30-day public comment period from March 24 to April 24, 2018. Hard copies are available at City Hall and the Union City Library.

Public Services Needs Assessment Study and Funding Strategy
The Union City Public Services Needs Assessment and Funding Strategy is an evaluation of the current public services available to the Union City community and an analysis of the public service needs in the community. The report evaluates the existing service providers to determine how their services meet the needs of the community, the barriers that prevent residents from finding the services they need, and the gaps in services. This assessment report provides conclusions about the current and future needs of the community, recommendations on how to help streamline processes and help service providers maximize efficiency, and a funding strategy designed to help guide the City in the grant funding process.
