The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and the HOME Investment Partnership are grant programs funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique needs such as rehabilitation of housing, acquisition and development of affordable housing, homelessness prevention and assistance, and neighborhood projects.
The City of Norman Community Development Block Grant Program has prepared the following survey to seek input on the needs of low and moderate income citizens of Norman. In accordance with the approved Citizen Participation Plan, a Public Hearing will be held on January 5, 2022 to discuss the results of this survey. The Public Hearing will be held in the Council Chambers located at 201 W Gray at 6:00pm. The CDBG program activities must meet at least one of the three National Objectives outlined by HUD: activities benefiting low and moderate income persons; activities preventing or eliminating slum or blight; and/or activities meeting other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health and welfare of the community and other financial resources are not available to meet such needs. Please complete the survey to help us determine what programs/projects should be considered for CDBG funding. Results of the survey will be shared with other funding entities, such as United Way, for consideration.

CDBG Target Areas
Housing Rehabilitation Programs
The City of Norman's Housing Rehabilitation Programs are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program and the HOME program. These programs have funded over $4,000,000 of rehabilitation work in Norman since 1977. These programs offered are Deferred Payment Loan for Rehabilitation, a Deferred payment Loan for Emergency Repair, and a Deferred Payment Loan for Accessibility Modifications; a Grant for Renter-Occupied Accessibility Modifications or Non-Profit Agency Accessibility Modifications. An applicant must meet the income guidelines for that program as well as other qualifications specific to each particular program.
Continuum of Care
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) introduced the Continuum of Care (CoC) Planning Process in 1994. This community-based planning process identifies, prioritizes and works to meet the housing and supportive services needs of homeless individuals and families to include Transitional Housing, Permanent Supportive Housing, and Rapid Re-Housing.
