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 the City's total CDBG funding allocation, of which up to 15% of that allocation can be used towards funding public service programs in the community.  Local community-based non-profit organizations can apply for these funds to use toward new or expanded projects and services within the City limit boundaries.

The City of Merced will be holding the following informational meetings open to the public, to help determine how the 2020 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 2020-2021 fiscal year:
