Community Development Block Grant

Improvements to Springfield Township's Bicentennial Park supported by Community Development Block Grant funding

The Erie County Department of Planning administers state-funded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs in Erie County.

These funds are used to help Erie County municipalities housing and community development projects that principally benefit low-to-moderate income residents.

Erie County administers funds on behalf of 29 municipalities in the county that are labeled “non-entitlement” – meaning they do not receive state or federal CDBG allocations.

The county also administers the program on behalf of four “entitlement” municipalities – Edinboro and North East boroughs and Girard and McKean townships – that are entitled to receive state funds and on behalf of Millcreek Township, which is entitled to receive federal funds.

For more information on CDBG programs, call the Department of Planning and Community Development at 814-451-7330.
