What We Do

The Community Development program administers and implements non-housing projects that benefit low and moderate income residents of King County. Projects can range from:

  • Sidewalks
  • Community facilities
  • Sewer and water main projects
  • ADA improvements
  • Microenterprise assistance
  • Park improvements
  • Minor home repair programs

We make these investments in our communities primarily through Community Development Block Grant funds that come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). On a limited basis, CDBG funds also assist low moderate income individuals directly through human service initiatives. CDBG also funds Housing Repair and select Affordable Housing projects.


Eligible applicants for CDBG non-housing capital funds include:

  • Nonprofit organizations,
  • Local governments (including cities, special districts and other King County departments)
  • Public housing authorities

CDBG can do a lot. First, a CDBG project must be an eligible “activity” such as one of the construction projects mentioned above. It must also do one of the following:

  • Benefit low-moderate income people (at least 70% of all CDBG funds must benefit this group)
  • Aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight
  • Meet Community Development needs having a special urgency

King County CDBG Consortium

The King County CDBG Consortium is established under interlocal cooperation agreements between King County and 34 cities and towns.
