Community development organization can plan on asking for federal CDBG funds needed to finish work on the palces and buildings local residents use to live in their community. Upcoming meetings in county outlying communities will give locals an opportunity to tell the county's Housing and Community Development Department the work on building a built out community that stays undone.

Earlier CDBG funding improved local community work on local senior centers, parks, streets, drainage systems, and fire stations. Affordable housing building raises the count of affordable homes available to low to moderate income San Diegans.

Applications for the next round of CDBG funding end on October 24.
