City of Casper is an entitlement community which means it receives Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) each year. These funds vary each year and are determined by Congress.
CDBG funds must be used to meet one of three (3) national objectives:
- Benefit low to moderate income persons
- Address slum and blight
- Meet an urgent community need
Any project funded with CDBG funds must be able to demonstrate how it meets the national objective. Low to moderate income persons are those persons whose household income does not exceed 80% of the area median income as published by HUD on an annual basis.
