Community Development Block Grant

State Community Development Block Grant Program

For the past 20 years, the State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program has been a source of versatile and comprehensive funding to help small cities and rural areas meet their housing and community development needs. This time-tested program has made it possible for states and communities to address local problems, take advantage of development opportunities, and provide an impressive range of benefits to low-and moderate-income citizens.

The City of Medina is eligible to apply bi-annually for an allocation per year of approximately $75,000. The amount of the allocation is based on the percentage of low to moderate income areas and residents within the city and also the amount of funding that the state receives from the Federal Government. The program is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Community Partnerships.

Below is a list of projects within Medina City that have been funded over the past ten years, either fully or partially by Community Development Block Grant dollars:

Medina County Transit
ADA curb ramps
West Liberty Street Sidewalks
Exterior home painting
ADA fixtures for Medina Community Recreation Center
Playground equipment for Ray Mellert Park





In the spring of 2019, the City of Medina applied to the Development Services Agency for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Small Cities Program, a federally funded program administered by the State of Ohio, Development Services Agency.
