Community Development Block Grant Programs

 

Maintaining our neighborhoods and helping our residents are top priorities for the City of St. Peters. Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) have been instrumental in helping us achieve these goals.

 

CDBG funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the purpose of helping low- and moderate-income households. St. Peters administers CDBG funding for several programs, ranging from helping to maintain a home, buy a home, or receive rides to reach essential services. Learn more about those programs by following the links below:
