The City of Merced Housing Division participates in the CDBG Program, which distributes federal funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) each year. HUD, using a formula that accounts for population, poverty, and the age and condition of the housing stock, determines the amount of funding available for the City and local community-based organizations to use toward projects and services within its boundaries.

The City of Merced will be holding the following informational meetings open to the public, to help determine how the 2019 HUD Annual Action Plan funds are to be spent during the fiscal year, as well as to provide information to those community-based organizations interested in applying for CDBG funding for the 2019-2020 fiscal year:
