Brief history of CDBG program in Utah County

Utah County previously received CDBG funds through the state-administered CDBG program.  In 2010 Utah County became an Urban County (or “Entitlement”) and now receives grant funds directly from the federal government. The program is administered by Mountainland Association of Governments on behalf of Utah County.

For more information on the history and scope of the federal program, visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s CDBG website.
