Eligible Applicants

Only counties and incorporated cities and towns are eligible to apply for CDBG funds. Local governments may apply on behalf of other units of government, non-profit and for-profit businesses and special interest groups.

The cities of Casper and Cheyenne are not eligible because they are entitlement cities and receive CDBG funds directly from HUD. However, Laramie and Natrona counties may apply on behalf of a project located within the municipal boundaries of Cheyenne or Casper, respectively, if it can be demonstrated the benefits of the project are available on a county-wide basis.

The CDBG program is now administered by the Wyoming Community Development Authority (WCDA).

The Wyoming Business Council no longer administers the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.  It is now administered by the WCDA.  Please visit their site for the latest information:  wyomingcda.com/affordable-housing/

Consolidated Planning

The Wyoming Consolidated Plan is a five-year outlook of the state's housing and community development needs and resources. It establishes strategies and prioritizes the use of housing and community development dollars statewide. The Wyoming Business Council and partner agencies prepare the plan using a participatory process at all levels. The Annual Action plan within the Consolidated Plan serves as the state's annual application for federal funds distributed as formula grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

For more information about the Consolidated Plan and the Annual Action Plan, contact Wyoming Business Council Planning Manager Kim Porter at 307-777-5812, kim.porter@wyo.gov.
