Federal Grant Programs

The City of Trenton receives 3 entitlement grants each year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. They are the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, the Home Investment Partnership and the Emergency Solutions Grant.

This page is intended to provide the public with information regarding the planning and implementation of the programs and to provide opportunities to become involved and offer their feedback on how funds are allocated. If you would like to receive updates on the programs as well as be notified of opportunities for citizen participation please subscribe to the City’s CDBG email list.



The Consolidated Plan is a five-year document that identifies community needs and spending priorities for Community Development Block Grant, Emergency Solutions Grant and HOME Program funding that the city receives as an entitlement community.

The Annual Action Plan is a one-year plan that explains and discusses available block grant funding for the coming fiscal year and how it will be used to fulfill Consolidated Plan priorities. 

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing comprehensively reviews the community’s laws, regulations, administrative policies, housing market and housing practices to determine whether any barriers to fair and equal access to housing are present. 

All Consolidated Plan, Annual Action Plan and Analysis of Impediments materials including the including the instructions to apply for CDBG and ESG RFP are available here.
