About the Community Development Block Grant - (CDBG) Program

The federal government, through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), uses a program called Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to provide communities with resources to address a wide range of developmental needs. The City of Minot has received CDBG funds through two specialized programs relating to the historic flood of 2011, the Disaster Recovery program (CDBG-DR) and the National Disaster Resilience competition (NDR). These programs combined to provide over $176 million for the Minot community, and the links below have more detailed information about each.

Please review the documents and information on this site to see how these funds have been used, along with plans for the future.
