Programs Previously Funded by the City of Lacey with CDBG Funds (2014, 2017, 2020)
As a Thurston County Urban County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Partnership member, Lacey receives CDBG funding every three years. Over the last three funding cycles for Lacey (2014, 2017, and 2020), the City provided over $1.1 million for homeless and affordable housing efforts, including: $750,000 for social services (not including Veteran and youth services), close to $500,000 for Veteran services, and over $370,000 for youth services — including homeless youth services (see below). With the City’s leadership, members of the Thurston County Urban County CDBG Partnership are looking to dedicate half of the CDBG funding over the next three-year period to affordable housing efforts in Thurston County.
