Resources for Awarded Recipients
The Plan focuses on the low- and moderate-income population by addressing their needs under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) three “umbrella” goals of affordable decent housing, a suitable living environment, including services, and expanded economic opportunities. The new 2014-2018 Consolidated Plan is the document current applicants use to submit funding requests and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Advisory Board and staff use to make yearly recommendations for funding to the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners.
Annual Action Plan
The Annual Action Plan lists and describes the projects that the County proposes to fund during a specific year to address priority objectives identified in the Consolidated Plan. It also serves as Douglas County’s annual funding application for the CDBG program. The 2009 Annual Action Plan is included as part of the 2009-2013 Consolidated Plan.
All applicants who are awarded CDBG funds must sign a contract (Subgrantee Agreement) with Douglas County outlining the federal regulations and local requirements associated with receiving and using the grant funds. A standard template is used for all contracts and the template is crafted to each specific Subgrantee’s project or program. The following is a copy of the SubGrantee Agreement (template):

The Project Manager Training Manual is a desk reference designed to provide technical assistance for project managers by providing them with an overview of the CDBG program, as well as providing pertinent information regarding the requirements to successfully complete CDBG projects.
