CDBG (Community Development Block Grant)

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The CDBG Program is administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and is designed to make neighborhoods better. The CDBG Program has become an important resource for projects benefiting low-and moderate-income (LMI) households and neighborhoods. Through this program, neighborhoods in Logan have been improved by projects such as sidewalks, housing programs, and public services. Due to the federal regulations associated with this program, not all options are available in all neighborhoods, but there are definitely some options that can improve your neighborhood.

The next CDBG Program application period will begin in February 2016.

Bear River Association of Governments Programs

Single Family Rehab and Reconstruction Loan Program
This program provides much needed funding to address inadequate housing. Low to moderate income families may borrow any amount of money at low interest rates to make much needed and eligible repairs. By investing now in the rehabilitation of existing dwelling units, a home's lifespan can be extended a minimum of 20 years. Funds for the program are provided by the Olene Walker Housing Loan Fund.

Furnace Replacement/Repair Program
Help is available through BRAG to repair or replace, when necessary, furnaces in low-income households. Funding is available to pay part or all of furnace repair or replacement costs for those eligible families who need the help.

Weatherization Program
The major goal of the Weatherization Assistance Program is to enable low-income households to participate in energy conservation programs, which will lessen the impact of utility costs on their household budgets.

Participating households are averaging nearly 25% in savings, or approximately $400 per year. Priority is given to the elderly and handicapped, high-energy consumption, emergency situations, and where preschool children are present. Others are eligible to apply.

Family Financial Wellness Workshops are hosted by Bear River Association of Governments and are FREE for Cache Valley residents of all ages, life stages, and income ranges to learn more about the basics of credit, budgeting, homeownership, banking, and more!
