Community Development Block Grant Program

The City is a member of the Thurston County – Urban County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Other members include the city of Tumwater and Thurston County. The program provides funding to support affordable housing and community development needs throughout the greater Thurston County area.

Funding Amounts & Cycle

Member entities are provided CDBG funding every three years. The grant amount is based on the population size and the number of low-income persons living in Thurston County, not including the city of Olympia, which is a stand-alone entitlement community.

The City of Lacey received CDBG funding in 2014, 2017, 2020 and 2023.

Community Development Block Grant Funding Uses

CDBG funds are used for a wide range of community development activities including neighborhood revitalization, economic development and improved community facilities and services. Any project receiving CDBG funding is required from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to meet at least one of three national objectives:     

  • Benefit low- and moderate-income persons.
  • Aid in the prevention or elimination of slum or blight.
  • Meet urgent community development needs.
