A public meeting and technical assistance workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 6, at Elk Grove City Hall. Community members are encouraged to attend the 2:30pm workshop and provide input on what programs, services and activities are most needed in Elk Grove over the next five years. At 3:30pm, the City will hold a technical assistance workshop to provide an overview of the eligibility requirements, application process, and to answer technical questions and assist applicants.

The CDBG program is supported by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. It funds public service activities that benefit low-income Elk Grove residents, and can also assist nonprofits with facility improvements. Since 2003, the City has used funds to support senior and youth programs, upgrade nonprofit facilities, run housing programs, and complete accessibility improvements throughout the City.
