Community Development Block Grant

The city is funding the pavement project through federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) monies from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

“The streets included in the project were identified using qualified census tracts per HUD’s guidelines. This type of funding from HUD is specifically designated for road rehabilitation projects, requiring that selected streets not be severely deteriorated, not classified as arterials, and located in areas meeting HUD’s criteria for community development,” said the news release.

To accomplish the goal of improving more roads in Hesperia, the city said it designated a larger amount of CDBG monies towards its CDBG Capital Fund, increasing necessary resources to address future street projects.
