The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is a federal housing and community development program administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The City of Encinitas is an entitlement jurisdiction, which means the City receives a CDBG grant annually to assist with housing and community development activities.

City of Encinitas Program 

Every year in the Spring, the City of Encinitas City Council approves how the City’s CDBG funding will be allocated. The funding is typically allocated into three categories: public services, fair housing and administration, and capital improvements. CDBG requirements limit funding for public services to 15 percent of the annual grant, and 20 percent for fair housing and administration. Below are plans and documents which describe how the City of Encinitas carries out the CDBG program.
