Federal Grants - Community Development Block Grant

CDBG and HOME are federal block grant programs from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that provide communities with flexible funding to address a wide range of community development needs.
The City of Bremerton receives this block grant funding each year to expand economic opportunities, and provide a suitable living environment and decent housing--principally for our low- and moderate-income community members.
The City’s Block Grant funding has touched countless lives and impacted our community in many ways, great and small. Available below are links to information about our annual awards, policies, performance reports, and more.
