CDBG funds are used for the City's "Revitalizing Existing Neighborhoods through Enhancement, Work, and Livability" or Renewal program. The Renewal Program offers:
Home emergency repairs
Rehabilitation and/or acquisition of problem property for redevelopment purposes
These federally-funded programs typically benefit lower-income households on a sliding scale loan program geared to their individual income levels. Additionally, there is a Facade Improvement Loan Program (PDF) for the benefit of the Downtown Business Improvement District (i.e., Old Town Pocatello and the Warehouse Historic District). Close collaborative efforts between loan program administrators and code enforcement personnel are a key to the success of these and other revitalization efforts. View our bids for current projects.
