Grants to Nevada rural county and city governments to address issues that have arisen specifically from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Funding is intended to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the pandemic. Priority is given to projects that benefit low and moderate-income populations.

In promoting and facilitating Community Development in rural Nevada, the Rural Community and Economic Development Division administers the State and Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Established in 1982 and administered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), CDBG funds are spent on projects that help achieve one or more of the following goals:

  • Development of suitable living environments.
  • Supply decent housing.
  • Creation of economic opportunities in rural parts of the state.

Program funds must be spent on projects which primarily serve low- and moderate income persons.

The CDBG Program is a widely appreciated and highly flexible community development tool, and a genuine federal-state-local government partnership. The state receives its CDBG funds from the federal government, and uses those funds to provide grants to units of local government which implement the projects, typically using local contractors and/or non-profit organizations.

In Nevada there are 26 local government entities that can apply for the State CDBG funds. Communities receiving CDBG funds from the state may use those funds for a variety of community development activities, such as:

  • Acquisition of property for public purposes.
  • Construction or reconstruction of streets, water and sewer facilities, neighborhood centers, recreation facilities and other public works.
  • Demolition.
  • Rehabilitation of public and private buildings.
  • Public services.
  • Planning and capacity building activities.
  • Assistance to nonprofit entities for community and economic development activities.
  • Assistance to private, for-profit entities to carry out economic development activities, including assistance to micro-enterprises.
