Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program

UEZ (1)

The OCED administers the CDBG Program and makes assistance available to low and moderate-income individuals and households. From crime prevention strategies to financial assistance to non-profits, the OCED has an array of programs and services that will benefit people, places and infrastructure throughout Long Branch. While our country bears the responsibility of committing resources to international causes, domestically and locally, we are challenged to not only make do with present allocation, but in fact, we must strive to do more with less and there is an imminent threat in Washington that funds could be diverted as the need abroad may dictate. Despite this reality, we remain confident that federal programs and services will be available to those who are in need. The OCED is committed to delivering such services in an efficient and fair system for eligible clients.

OCED - Consolidated Annual Performance & Evaluation Reports

The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report is an integrated document mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development that combines the former ENTERS document into a singular Program-Year-Ending report. Through the Office of Community and Economic Development, the City of Long Branch uses CDBG funds and reports to the HUD Regional Office on the use and expenditures of said funds. The ensuing data will explain the requirements described in the Consolidated Plan regulations at 24 CFR 91.520 and subsequent statutes for the 2001 Consolidated Plan Program Year. This report will analyze project resources, programmatic accomplishments as well as activities implemented during the past Annual Work Plan.
