Community Development Block Grant Program- 48th Year 

The City of New London’s Office of Development and Planning (ODP) is the administering agency for the City
of New London’s entitlement grant under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, a
Federally funded program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The amount of
CDBG funding that will be available for Program Year 48 (7/1/22-6/30/23) has not yet been provided by the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development. However, last fiscal year the City of New London received
$905,121.


CDBG funds may be used for a wide range of activities with specific activity funding decisions made at the local
level. All program activities must:

  • Benefit low- and moderate-income persons as defined by HUD; or
  • Provide physical improvements to an area characterized by slum or blight.


The Office of Development and Planning will accept applications in the following categories:

1. Public Services – Public Services include social/health services provided to low- and moderate-income
New London residents. All funds awarded must be spent within this program year. The City will not
accept requests for food as part of a program’s scope of services except for nutritional programs
including food banks and shelters. 51% of clients served must be below income limits set by HUD
each year.


2. Public Facilities & Improvements – such activities include improvements to youth centers, homeless
shelters, streets and streetscapes, etcetera. If your agency is applying for funds under this category,
please read the application carefully; important information has been added to ensure cost estimates are
accurate. All construction project funds must be expended within three (3) years of award. After three
years, any remaining funding will be reallocated to another project.


3. Rehabilitation & Preservation – such activities include residential and nonresidential/commercial/historic building improvements. There are many restrictions in this category, so
please contact the Community Development Coordinator prior to submitting an application under this
category. All construction project funds must be expended within three (3) years of award. After three
years, any remaining funding will be reallocated to another project.


The public facilities application can be used for #2 & #3.

Organizations that receive funding will be required to enter into a contractual agreement with the City of New
London for the provision of services/activities stated in the application. All organizations that receive funding will
be required to comply with all data collection, reporting and monitoring requirements as established by HUD.
