Community Grants & Programs

 Community Grants and Programs administers the San Benito Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

CDBG, like other block grant programs, differ from categorical grants made for specific purposes, in that they are subject to less federal oversight and are largely used at the discretion of the state and local governments and their sub-grantees.

As such, this department strives to effectively identify, secure and manage federal, state, and local grant-funding opportunities that will promote an increased quality of life for the San Benito community.
