Community Development

The Planning and Development Department administers and monitors receipt and expenditure of the City’s annual entitlement allocation of federal grant dollars known as the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME funds. This responsibility includes staff support of the Euclid Citizens Advisory Committee that, each year, reviews all funding applications for spending such grant dollars before submitting its recommendations to Euclid City Council.
