The Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program provides grants on a formula basis to entitled cities and counties to develop viable urban communities. These grants are provided on a bi-annual basis to the City of Oakland. More information about CDBG in Oakland can be found here.
Each Council district establishes a board to determine how those funds will be used in accordance with its own set of priorities, as well as priorities set by the City of Oakland.
The District 1 Board Members are:
Teron McGrew - Chair
Peter Russo - Vice Chair
Davis Baltz - Secretary
Members: Cathy Leonard, Eden Brukman, Brandie Albright, Joanne Dickerson-Harper
District 1’s CDBG board members will meet in April to discuss its grant funding recommendations (see proposals linked below). Please email Deidra Moss at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or more information.
