HOME and CDBG Program Overview

Development and support of affordable housing is a key priority for two Federal funding programs - HOME and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The County administers these funds in the following jurisdictions: 

  • HOME: All of Contra Costa County
  • CDBG: The Urban County, which includes all of the Contra Costa County except the cities of Antioch, Concord, Pittsburg, and Walnut Creek

Information about the Federal Grant programs, including plans and reports can be found on the CDBG Home page 

Allocation of HOME and CDBG is part of an annual cycle of Federal/State/Local funding awards.
