In order to receive funds from the City’s block grant program, applicants must demonstrate a given project or program’s conformance with the eligibility requirements mandated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Programs providing an area-wide benefit must be located in one of the City’s eligible census tracts. Programs providing direct-benefit services to recipients, 51% or more of which are Portland residents from households of low to moderate income, may also qualify for funding.

Once program eligibility is established, each program must also be found consistent with local policies and procedures as outlined in the City’s Five-Year 2005-2010 Consolidated Plan. Of particular importance when applicable are the Social Services Priority Needs List and the Physical Improvement Project Review Criteria.
