Survey Offers Opportunity for Community Input into Uses for Grant Funding

By the City of Santa Barbara

As the City of Santa Barbara begins to plan for its Annual Action Plan for Fiscal Year 2025, the City is seeking the input of our community partners, stakeholders and residents as we prioritize the potential uses for CDBG funding in the fiscal year 2025.

Each year the City of Santa Barbara receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These funds are intended to primarily benefit low- and moderate-income residents in the community. The funding can be used for homelessness, housing, economic development, and community facilities and infrastructure.

The City seeks your input as we prioritize the potential uses for this funding in the fiscal year 2025. The deadline to complete the survey is September 15. Thank you for your participation!

  1. Fun fact for the right-wing whiners on here: Dump’s HUD secretary Ben Carson spent more on office furniture and remodels than any one of these grants is worth. When asked about it, his office replied that “$5000 doesn’t even buy a decent office chair.” I’ll take a bit of bureaucracy over thieving idiots any day.

  2. Here we go again with the “grants.” Just remember that “grants” are not free money. The “grants” are tax payer dollars that are taken by taxes and then doled out to some AFTER the bureaucrats get payed to take the taxes and dole out the free “grants.” It’s a great deal for the bureaucrats…
