The City of Greenwood, IN

Welcome to the website for the City of Greenwood!

A U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program, Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) provide communities with resources to address a wide range of unique development needs. The goals of the program are to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expand economic opportunities principally for low and moderate-income citizens. The CDBG program may only fund projects located in, or programs serving, the City of Greenwood.

PY 2021 CDBG ACTION PLAN Amendment
Greenwoods 2019-2023 Consolidated Plan details the funding strategy for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), for the period between October 1, 2019, and September 30, 2024. The program year (PY) 2021 (FY 2021/2022) Action Plan outlines the implementation of 2021 funding for the period between October 1, 2021, and September 30, 2021, which is developed through significant public input, analyses, and planning. The City of Greenwood allocated an amount of funding based on estimates for installing a park trail at Northeast Park. Due to rising construction costs and the rising cost of oil, the City of Greenwood will need to allocate more funding towards that project.

As a requirement of receiving Community Development Block Grant funds, the city must take steps to assure that discriminatory actions, either explicit or implicit, that constrain the choices of people to procure adequate housing are being identified and mitigated.  As such, the City published the 2019-2023 Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice.
