Gilbert receives CDBG and HOME funds annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development utilizes these funds to provide various housing, infrastructure and public facility improvements.
For the Fiscal Year 2023-2024 Annual Action Plan, Gilbert has proposed using CDBG and HOME funds for three key focus areas:
To help low-income residents have a suitable living environment through home rehabilitation assistance programs and additional funding for local nonprofits.
To provide needed public services, including administrative support at the Gilbert Heritage Center and a homeless navigator to provide support for residents experiencing homelessness.
To invest in infrastructure development, including renovations for the kitchen at the Gilbert Senior Center and continued repairs and replacement of non-accessible sidewalks in the Heritage District.
Feedback on the draft plan can be submitted to Jennifer Lauria, Gilbert's community resources supervisor, via email or by phone:
