Annual Entitlement Grant


Gilroy receives an annual CDBG entitlement grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These funds are to be used locally to benefit primarily low and moderate income individuals or neighborhoods, including the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA).

Annual Action Plan (AAP)


May 15 of every year, the city submits to HUD an annual action plan as part of its 5-year Consolidated Plan, describing the proposed use of CDBG funds.  

An amendment to the FY 19/20 AAP was approved by City Council at a public hearing on February 24, 2020 to reallocate $300,000 unspent CDBG funds for sidewalk improvements within the NRSA. This project was scheduled to begin in March, but will have a delayed start due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These sidewalk improvements are anticipated to start once the emergency situation has been lifted.
