Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)   

The mission of Fairfield’s CDBG program is to improve the quality of life in targeted areas in Fairfield for extremely low-, low-, and moderate-income residents by: 

  • Reducing crime
  • Supporting childcare and youth programs
  • Increasing economic opportunities
  • Promoting life skill assistance programs for elderly and or disabled residents, and
  • Preserving or increasing the stock of affordable housing units.

We accomplish this mission by funding local non-profits and city projects to achieve our CDBG goals and strategies.

The City of Fairfield has been a US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant program entitlement city since 1975.
