The Community Development Division administers the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the Human Services General Fund Grant programs, which fund services and projects benefiting income-qualified residents that meet the HUD Income Qualifications.
The City of East Lansing has launched a Small Business Relief Grant Program focused on job retention throughout the East Lansing community. Business applicants with employees meeting income eligibility requirements can apply to receive up to $10,000 in grant assistance towards lease payments, mortgage payments, utility payments and payroll expenses. Grant funds will be issued on a reimbursement basis only.
Program funding is being provided by the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). As a Community Development Block Grant entitlement community, the City of East Lansing received funds from HUD to assist in the preparation and response to the coronavirus.
