Economic Development Strategic Action Plan (EDSAP)

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) is a federally funded program through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

As a non-entitlement jurisdiction, Crescent City applies for CDBG funding through the California Department of Housing and Community Development. The City has an open grant of $5,000,000 (grant # 17-CDBG-12092) for several projects, including a Planning and Technical Assistance grant for an economic development plan. The grant provides $93,023 in funding, and the City has a required match of $5,000.The City awarded a contract to Planwest Partners, Inc. to develop the Economic Development Strategic Action Plan, and it was adopted by the Council on June 21, 2021.
