Community Development Block Grant
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a program of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) created in 1974 as part of Title I of HCD ACT of 1974, as amended.
The primary objective of Title I is the development of viable urban communities. This is achieved by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment and expanded economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income. The program provides the basic funding necessary to administer the many housing, public works, economic development, and public service activities which help to further Randolph's overall community development objectives. This program is intended to support the town as it continues to grow and improve, and to help serve the most vulnerable members of our community.
Year 1 (FY21)
The Town has been awarded a CDBG grant for housing rehabilitation and childcare subsidies serving the town of Randolph. The Town applied for a CDBG grant to rehabilitate sub-standard housing and to provide childcare subsidies in the three towns in the town-wide target area. Sixteen units of housing will be rehabilitated and up to 21 childcare vouchers will be provided.
The Town has contracted with Bailey Boyd Associates for the day-to-day management of the grant under CDBG guidelines and all applicable state and federal statutes and regulations through close-out.
