How much CDBG funding does Waterford Township receive every year?

The Township’s annual grant is based on a formula established by Congress and this amount may change based on the total Congressional appropriation given to HUD for a given year.  The funding amount is further impacted by the number of new “entitlements”.  As more communities are authorized to receive funding, everyone’s slice of the funding pie decreases.  Due to these factors and the recent economic downturn, our CDBG budget has suffered the last several years.
