Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

Thornton receives Community Development Block Grant funds each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to use for housing and community development programs or projects that benefit low- and moderate-income residents. Projects may be completed by the City or through partnerships with nonprofits and housing service providers. Thornton has been receiving these funds since 1986 and new CDBG projects are approved each year by City Council. Neighborhood Services accepts applications for this grant funding each year. If you have a project idea, give us a call at 303-538-7346 or send us an email at cdbg@cityofthornton.net.
