This division administers the following grant programs:
Community Development Block Program
The CDBG program aims to benefit low and moderate income persons, eliminate conditions of slum and blight, or meet an urgent need (as defined by HUD) within the City of Medford.
General Fund Grant Program
The mission of the City General Fund Grant (GFG) Program is to provide funding to support outside agencies and organizations that care for the needs of Medford residents with programs and services the City itself either cannot, or does not, provide due to lack of facilities, staffing, funding, or other limitations.
Housing Opportunity Fund
The Housing Opportunity Fund is a demonstration of the City’s commitment to increase the supply of quality, affordable housing for Medford households earning up to 120% of the Area Median Income. There are a variety of challenges that housing developers, providers, and property owners encounter when seeking to develop quality housing that is affordable. This fund was created to address some of these challenges and to incentivize community partners in the production of affordable housing.
